Northern Lights 2014
I’ve seen time-lapses from Iceland. I’ve seen videos from space of the colours around the Arctic. I’ve even seen photos of the Aurora Borealis from St Andrews, where I live. I've really wanted to see them myself.
So when I checked my Facebook account and saw this post from Ed, you might think I was overwhelmed by excitement. But I wasn't.
My first reaction, honestly, was dismissal. I didn't know Ed as someone familiar with astronomy, and I'm well aware of how a little wishful thinking can turn aeroplanes or planets into UFOs, and light pollution or high clouds into astronomical events.
