The Aurora Service (Europe) suggests the best time to see the northern lights could be in the early hours of tomorrow morning, around 3am.
For the best chance to see them you’ll need a combination of clear skies and no light pollution.
Capturing them on camera typically requires long exposures for still photography, with time-lapse footage looking best on video.
