For crying out loud!!!!!!!!!!!!! The whole of Ireland would fit in my suburb!!!!and YOU are whining you have to go all the way to Donegal to SEE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o

Tell me you are going Pip..... or that you have seen them at least 50 times before and therefore dont need to go.

Never seen em. Its very rare to get any sight of them in Ireland . And i wasn't whining . I just said I'm off to donegal. I'll see how things go. I have some surveying to do in Donegal and sligo at some point so i might try combine the two and get a couple of days there .

What Del said!

I just had a look at cruises to the Northern Lights and they seem to have sold out for 2012. A site for Feb/Mar 2013 is offering cruises for around £1000 - £1350 for 14 nights. It is something I am now considering. :D

Good Grief!

All I have to do is step outside the door - and turn off the outside lights. Of course, it's weather dependent and not guaranteed but we do get to see some awesome light shows in the winter. (But I'm not in Ireland)

There you go Selkie.... rent a room out for $500 a night during the "season" ;) Throw in a quick drive around the island and a right royal home cooked meal, throw them out the door at sundown to sit on a couple of camp chairs in the yard in the dark, run around the back of the house and shine a few torches up on the clouds and bobs your uncle!

You wills be rich I tells ya! :D

The news here tonight had an item about the northern lights.... apparently the best in years. Something to do with a massive solar storm.

And heres a pic from out of space. Apparently the solar storm is dangerous to the astronauts.
