I've had cloudy weather off and on this entire week. I hope I get a chance to see it.

The comet was a complete no-show in Kulusuk, Greenland on 16th, 17th, 18th March. Perhaps it was lost in the sunset glow, but I dont care: I had three dark-sky displays of the Northern Lights. Absolutely stunning!

Wow Geoffrey, you certainly get around to some unusual places. Must have been great seeing the Aurora Borealis. What next? The Aurora Australis!

I wish I was back in Greenland enjoying the glorious daytime sunshine and the black night skies, instead of a driving blizzard of wet snow that greeted me (and has now completely trapped my car in our driveway)on my return home.

(By the way, easy access from Glasgow or London via Reykjavik, Iceland).
