Many of us turned our eyes to the sky on Wednesday evening (June 24) in the hope of catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
For some lucky viewers, the sky may have lit up with a flood of colours - and they got to tick that special vision off their bucket list.
But if you’re too late, or didn’t see it, there’s still hope.
You’re more likely to see the Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, the further north you go.
Dr Adrian Grocott, one of the researchers behind monitoring service Aurora Watch, said: "The most likely location is dependant on latitude. That is why you need to typically be further north than the UK to see them.
"The other main criteria are cloud cover and light pollution.
"So ideally you want to be very far north but also somewhere with no light pollution and clear nights."
You'd better also prepare for a winter holiday.
Grocott said: "If you go to these high latitudes in the middle of the summer the sun won’t set and you won’t see them either."
So here’s where you may be able to glimpse the dance of the particles:
Budget: Scottish Highlands
Hang out in the Highlands and you’ve got a slightly better chance of glimpsing them - 24 out of the last 40 sightings were in Scotland.
“The north of Scotland is certainly more likely relative to England," said Grocott. "But realistically it is the budget option - your chances are still slim compared to Norway.”
And if you want to be REALLY on budget, get there by Megabus.
Winter break: Scandinavia
You can see the Northern Lights eight months of the year in Iceland - there’s even a detailed weather forecast.
Rock up in Rekjavik mid-winter and you can sign up for a Northern Lights tour from £31.
The north of Norway, Finland and Sweden also have regular tours and sightings.
Return flights to Rekjavik or Tromsø in northern Norway will set you back around £200. Check out our tips for finding cheaper flights here.
Aurora adventures: Canada
It’s going to cost you, but if you can make it to Canada you’ve a chance of seeing the Northern Lights in true wilderness.
For £252 upwards, you can stay in Northern Lights resort ‘Aurora Village’ where you can watch the sky and wait from a wood stove-heated tepee.
Hunt them down: Aurora Flights
If you’ve camped out in the Highlands, raced around Rekjavik and spent night after night in Norway, perhaps it’s time you got a bit more proactive.
The Aurora Flights set off from British airports and hunt the Northern Lights across the North Atlantic for three hours, before returning home. You can see what passengers glimpsed on the flights here.
At £200 a pop, it’s cheaper than a holiday - but as the brochure warns: “Northern Lights are a natural phenomena which cannot be guaranteed to occur during our flight.”
