AN alignment of the Earth and the Sun has caused beautiful displays of #auroraborealis, also known as the #NorthernLights, across parts of the UK. The natural phenomenon which causes a celestial light show in the night sky is likely to remain visible over areas of #Britain for the next few weeks.
Northern England, North Wales, and Scotland are said to be among the best potential viewing points in the UK, so Pitchup.com, an outdoor accommodation specialist, has compiled a guide to Northern Lights spotting from some of its best positioned sites.
Northumberland has been named as one of the area’s most likely to see the spectacular lights show. Pitch-up.com has wooden pods at the Border Forest Caravan Park in Otterburn, minutes from Kielder Observatory. The camping pod have electricity, heaters, and power sockets, and shared bathroom and kitchen facilities.
Northern Scotland is famously one of the best places to see the lights, and some beautiful photographs have recently been taken in Gamrie Bay in Aberdeenshire. A ten-minute drive away is Wester Bonnyton Farm where guests can stay in a three-bedroom holiday home which sleeps six.,
The skies are known to shine a green glow in East Lancashire, with beautiful scenes in the area of Pendle Hill recently. Experts think the lights will remain visible for weeks to come. Just minutes away is The White Stables in Bacup, where campers can pitch up on a non-electric grass pitch for just £10 per night. The pitch is suitable for motorhomes, caravans and tents for up to six guests.
Areas of North Wales have an increased likelihood of seeing the Northern Lights over the coming weeks due to coinciding space weather patterns and clear skies. There are luxury studio cabins at Wyldwoods Retreat in Powys.
