 Always so beautiful! (not my photo, my camera is too bad to capture them or I don't know right settings)

 This was only a few weeks ago, on February 20, 2014. My uncle was driving My brother, two of my friends and I home from a concert and a blizzard hit. The snow was so thick, we couldn't see 5 feet in front of us and with no street lights to guide us home, we were all pretty terrified. Moments after we began to pray for our safety, the snow and fog cleared away in front of us and we could see clearly. The most beautiful thing about it was the twirling green lights spread the entire way across the sky, guiding us back home. When we finally got home, the lights were fading, but were still clear enough to get a picture. Such a beautiful sight.

 These happen fairly often where I live, but this night they were very bright and active, given how well I could see them in an urban setting!

I grew up in North Dakota. The Northern Lights can be quite bright and beautiful. I’ve seen them on several occasions. The most notable were once on a date and around a campfire on the shores of a lake in Minnesota.

The lights themselves were not the point. The people you are with and the situation you are in are more important.

I don't have my own image. The photo was taken by Warren Finseth near Underwood, MN in February, 2014 and appeared in the Grand Forks Herald.

I love the northern lights, always have and always will. Clear skies, the stars are out, and the northern lights dancing across the sky. It is truly beautiful. I miss it everyday..

We got hit with bad weather for the most part of our trip to Iceland, so the chances of us seeing the Northern Lights were very slim or even close to impossible. On our last full day, out of sheer desperation, I suddenly felt an impulse to book us tickets to a Northern Lights tour despite the unpromising forecast. It was drizzling on and off, and to be honest I don't think anybody was convinced we were going to see it. Heck, even one of the tour guides didn't bring his camera thinking that there weren't going to be any sightings that night. After traveling an hour north of Reykjavik, we busted out our photography gear and tested a long exposure shot. What an amazing feeling it was when I saw that faint green arc appear on my camera! The lights got stronger and moved like a lava lamp, but more vividly I remember it as a light green glow in the sky. The Aurora we saw wasn't as strong as some of the beautiful postcards you see but it was still a pretty nice sight to behold!

On 27th August 2015 I saw the northern lights by eye with other aurora chasers at Whitley bay, UK. It was magical. Ive seen it twice again since then and will continue to pursue seeing it as often as possible. Below is a photograph I took on 27th/8/2015

I saw these for the first time in September 2011 while on a field trip in Iceland. I also saw them in Alta, Norway in 2013, Rovaniemi, Finland in 2014 and last week in Seltjanarnes, Iceland! It's unforgettable and definitely worth seeing.

To było moje największe marzenie! Udało mi się je zrealizować dzięki Karolowi Wójcickiemu, który propaguje astronomię w Polsce poprzez kanał na yt z głową w gwizdach. Któregoś dnia wspomniał, że kiedyś zorganizuje wspólną wyprawę do tromso, aby zobczyć zorzę - zapisałam się i tak 26.11.2016 r. znalazłam się w Tromso wraz 23 innymi uczestnikami wyprawy i zobaczyłam zorzę polarną - płakałam !!!!

My mom and I saw the Aurora Borealis during a flight from Frankfurt to Vancouver. Our flight was very nice because it was mostly empty, about a row to each person. While the lights were off because we were flying during the night, we noticed some light outside and ran to the windows to see. It was Aurora Borealis! The pilot announced it on the PA system, guess he didn't want anyone to miss it.
