    This picture was taken on January 19th only 5 days ago, showing the spectacular aurora borealis over Norway! It looks like a phoenix smile
    It is a real photograph and not a fake smile

    Striking! Are you used to seeing the sky so...I don't know. I think I'd freak out, be in shock seeing the sky like that.

      Up here in the north of England we can see it but only at certain times. However if you go to Aberdeen its quite normal to see them smile

        I'm pretty sure it was on the BBC news that you can see the aurora borealis as far south as Yorkshire just now, due to sunspot activity. Have you got a clear sky to look?

        Couple of cracking photos here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-16685364

          We have just seen it here, its beautiful and rare. We have never seen it here in Carlisle before.  I have just heard that there are rumours that the magnetic pole has  allegedly shifted and that strange noise that is going on around the world may have something to do with it x smile

            Nahh..it's just solar flares and stuff and we get them every year just about. When I listen out, all I hear are the baby foxes in the campo and the cat across the street.

            Got any photos?

            I've only ever seen the Northern Lights twice in my lifetime, despite living most of it a lot further north than you.

                  It looks like a giant nostril in the sky!!

                  I wish I could see them again, but not only am I too far south, there is a bloody great mountain blocking my view of the northern sky.

                    I lived in Norfolk for a while, we saw the Northern Lights on several occasions!

    Are those colors real? Green? Or is that just the camera? I told my son to come look, he thought I meant something wonderful in OUR part of the sky and had to tell him real quick - he loves pix like this but he likes best to take them himself.
    I'm pretty sure if I had been the first to see that, I would start a new religion.
