The Aurora

It is possible to see the Northern Lights from our area, it doesn't happen very often and the conditions have to be just right. To help you try and catch a glimpse of it we have a forecast page, issue alerts, and also display the current data on our website.

It is not possible to predict exact times and locations that the Aurora will be seen. We make an educated prediction based on the data, please remember this if heading out, we can not guarantee that the Aurora will be seen.

If we feel it is worth heading out we will let people know via our Facebook page & Twitter (OandRAstro).

You can sign up HERE and we will send you watch alerts via email.

Don't forget to share your pictures to the member images section of the website!
