    not a chance here in Wales its to cloudy , but the sky does look a strange colour in patches.
    Personally if its not to cloudy i think Scotland will get the best views

    well considering scotland is more north that makes sense

    lol yes used tosee them up near john o groats - quite amazing
    I think they have package trips to orkneys / thurso to see them -

    welcome to hukd! i had no idea you could see them in Orkney might have to look into that, thanks

    Yeah HTH , i think it's certain times of the year are the best -
    Its a closer destination than norway and a hell of a lot cheaper

    Saying that though I think there is more chance of seeing the NL in Norway , I see they have cruises to see them and they are going more reasonable nower days -

    HTH

    nothing down here in Dover

    Orkney is my favourite place in the world!! Have friends up there and go up as often as I can - long journey though and older my son gets, the more he just doesnt want to go!

    I could live there

    Ive always fancied going to Orkney and Shetlands , no idea why they just look so pretty, hopefully someone in the UK will get to see them tonight

    just looked outside and can see no northern lights yet,but will try again later and maybe get a photo if possible

    yes i have seen it this after noon on the you tube in uk

    you can get cheap ish flights up there eg get a ryan air flight to edinborough then train it to thurso and you can catch the ferry to orkney from there -

    I used to live near wick years ago - and it was great , unspoilt and the views were amazing .
    My other half used to work in the hospital and used to come home in the early hours and used to see the NL on the way home .
