Great start to the Aurora season in the UK!

05th October 2016
We've had a flying start to the elusive pursuit of aurora hunting in the UK this season. Just into October and we've already had several consecutive days of aurora being visible. Obviously the further north you are, the better your chances of seeing a display.

I'm based in the Lake District and we get to see a reasonable share up here each year. During the recent storms I've been out for four nights and managed to see the lights twice. 50% is a pretty good hit rate for me!

Luckily, I was over at Bamburgh in Northumberland the other day and was in the right place at the right time to see a lovely short display which peaked for no more than 10 minutes. Ok, it's not Iceland or Norway but seeing the northern lights in England is still a fantastic experience.

Here's a short time-lapse from the trip - note the fantastic lighthouse and it's distinctive 'surprised' look!
