As if having a  lovely long weekend to camp under the stars - and clear skies to enjoy them - wasn't enough,  we have northern lights to look forward to, possibly Saturday night!

Bob King's got the space weather forecast (with links for the three-day and the 27-day version) plus tips on how to photograph the aurora for yourself!
