I went up to Lapland with my family when I was quite young but we didn't see the Northern Lights, so one day I need to go back and make sure this time I do

I went to Iceland with one of my best friends at University. It was such an amazing week, and one night, after hours on a freezing mountain watching the stars, the sky tore apart and this green light appeared. It was hands down one of the most fantastic and beautiful experiences of my life.

This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life. My pictures don't tell the full story unfortunately, and aren't remotely as beautiful as what we saw.

We were told that usually the aurora appears white to the naked eye, and that the green you see in photos is just the result of cameras being able to 'see' different waves of light. BUT, it actually was green, almost as bright as my pictures.

At first, it was a still, feint green band across the sky... so we made our way across town to the Sun Voyager in the hopes of it getting better. We sat behind the sculpture for about half an hour, being teased by the clouds and the occasional moment where the green band would disappear completely. 30 minutes after arriving though, it came to life.

It suddenly became extremely bright, and turned from bright green to gold and purple along the edge, and moved across the sky like ribbons. It was so unbelievably beautiful that my boyfriend and I were just totally awestruck. It danced in the sky like this for about a minute, before returning to a slow moving green, occasionally doing another 'dance' from time to time. 

We were the only people sitting there for the gold and purple light show, apart from a few photographers along the coast behind us. I'd love to see the pictures they caught of this. 

Apparently seeing purple in the aurora only happens 'at the highest levels of solar activity', so I was extremely lucky to have seen this. I'm totally over the moon about it, but also sad in a way that I will never see a better aurora, unless of course it glows gold and purple for longer than a minute!

Traveling in Tromso, Norway in the winter of 2009. We had just been on a tour that including dogsledding and eating around a fire in a traditional Sami tent. On the drive home, the bus driver stopped to let us watch the Northern Lights. It was the most beautiful natural occurence I had ever witnessed.
