Northern Lights Trips From UK

Northern Lights Trips From UK, Missed out on that amazing light show in Scotland? Don’t worry, because scientists at Nasa, the U.S. space agency, has confidently predicted that this year the Aurora Borealis, or ‘Northern Lights’, will be the brightest and most intense for 50 years.
You just need to know where to go.
But what exactly is the Aurora Borealis? In truth, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding this marvel of nature. However, it is understood that the phenomenon is caused by ‘solar wind’ – electrically charged particles that the sun flings across the solar system constantly – but with varying intensity.
The particles are drawn to the earth’s magnetic fields around the poles, which is why they are visible at extreme latitudes (including the southern hemisphere, where they are called the Aurora Australis).
As they bombard the earth’s atmosphere, the particles ‘ionise’, releasing charges visible as light.
So here are six Aurora-watching holiday suggestions, for February and March.
