So what's the best tips? Look to the north (a given), get away from any artificial light sources and hope for the best. If you don't see them, or you live in the south, then it's probably just best you book a holiday to Norway or Iceland.

The Northern Lights are produced by solar particles that have crossed into the Earth's atmosphere.
