    Some good shows in Northern England and Scotland over last couple of days tonight could also be good.

    Tomorrow we are off for 5-6 days into Dumfries & Galloway and the first couple of nights staying at a CL right next to here

    Its my wife's ambition to see this spectacular, I was lucky enough to witness it on-board ship many years ago at Churchill, Manitoba, so fingers crossed for next few days.

    Good luck with seeing the northern lights, more tonight but it should be best 24-25th Jan according to reports. I got some pics last night but most were rubbish due to camera shake in the wind.:cry:

    My partner wanted to take me to see the Northern Lights. He'd seen them lots of times in Norway when he was in the army. After he died I booked a flight to see the Northern lights--- the evening the earth's magnetism swung round and we were the only flight of that company to see nothing,:Sad:
    Still hoping I'll get to see them one day.
