Last night many lucky spectators feasted their eyes on none other than the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.
The eerily beautiful illuminations are something that many believe one has to fly to Iceland to experience, but low and behold here they are seen from the coast of Ireland.

What a unbelievable show. A very special image tonight of myself and my Fiancee catching the Aurora. ♥
