The Aurora Borealis

Last night was surely something to have been celebrated, if you were fortunate enough to have witnessed it and possibly even ran under it, as some of my trail buddies managed!

(The Northern Lights).

The majority of the east coast of Scotland was fortunate to have bared witness to this natural wonder and spectacle.

It is exceptionally difficult, if not impossible, to predict the appearance of the Northern Lights. I have heard of some of my friends resorting to booking late night flights from Edinburgh Airport and taking to the skies, for a bespoke guided tour of the sky at night, also in hope to capture a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis.

Who says you need to travel over to Iceland to witness this wonder!?! Here are some shots from our very own doorsteps… 🙂

Enjoy the pics…!

An aurora is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere.
