There have been recent news reports of increasing solar activity, and even auroral observations from N. Ireland earlier this week.
The weather forecasts give little chance of clear skies here over the next week, but you can follow the activity in real-time from this magnetometer plot: http://www.dcs.lancs.ac.uk/iono/auroraw ... _activity/

When their magnetometer plot looks like this http://www.dcs.lancs.ac.uk/iono/auroraw ... 060400.gif, it's time to go out and find a clear view to the North!
