While it is difficult to predict the best time to watch, BBC 2's Stargazing Live says it will most likely be visible from around 00.30am until 3am this morning.



Fuck that !

(I might stay up somewhat beyond my bedtime if Liz Bonnin turns up in lingerie for the programme :hubba: ).

We had the street lights in my road converted to LED Lighting a few months ago. There's a lot less light pollutions the lights face downwards and you can actually see the correct colour of each wheelie bin now the hideous orange sodium lights have gone.

I prefer the old orange ones. These white ones are too bright. I wouldn't like one right outside my bedroom window.

the white LED lights they've replaced round here are actually dimmer than the sodium lights we have before. At least I can see the colours of the wheelie bins now

Same here. our street got with it about 3 years ago with big white light bright lamposts that are really bright and got rid of the orange #"wee willie winky" ones that looked like they had an orange lantern on the end. Bloody pointless things they were but the new ones are really bright.

Don't think i've actually seen the Northern Lights but never really looked.

There was a guy on FB earlier saying his geiger counter was going crazy while all this was going on. Probably nothing to worry about, I thought the lights were mainly magnetic fields and stuff.............

Well geiger counters measure ionising radiation so it's likely I guess
