I'd love to see the northern lights. Once there where reports of it comming down to the South Coast, just my luck it was bloody cloudy .

It's on the list of things I want to see before I die.

Unfortunately I can not bring it south with me next week, but you are always welcome to visit and stay with us.

34"? Pram wheels Most of the Icelandic trucks use more like 44" tyres, very cool they are too. Especially the ones with 1000bhp V8s that can walk on water

It's caused by the particles from solar flares hitting the earth's atmosphere. You can usually only see them in very northern (or southern) latitudes but when the solar flares are really strong you can see them further south. I think I read they they were seen as far south as northern England once.
