You won’t find the greatest show in the world on Broadway or in London’s West End. It’s not airing at 9 p.m. on Sunday night on HBO and, contrary to popular belief – you don’t have to board a plane to check it out.
Over recent years, thanks to strong solar wind activity, the skies above Ireland have played host to the shimmering beauty that is Aurora Borealis (aka the Northern Lights).
The result – mind-boggling beauty.
If the Northern Lights made a more regular appearance in Ireland, the tent gathering dust at the back of my shed would be an awful lot happier.
If you’re hoping to get a glimpse of them you can can sign up to alerts with the lads at Astronomy Ireland but until then – just sit back and enjoy the pictures below.
