Alas, our local light pollution clobbered it for me.

But I did see it some years ago in Durham, and it was truly magnificent. The castle with the aurora behind...

Not even a glimpse here, but this is my favourite image from the web (taken at Rutland Water):

I would advise stilts for the quagmires, and camels for the snowy hills
And any survivors, their debts I will certainly pay. There's always a way!

I'm lucky enough to live where there is very little of that.
I really hoped some of our friends here had at least caught a glimpse. I have only seen the intensity and colors like that once or twice before, but I do see it reasonably often.

Amazing photos!
I did have a quick look up at the sky but there was way too much light pollution, living next door to a work yard that's lit up like the superbowl in the evenings
