Our eyes will be fixed firmly northwards this evening because tonight could bring some spectacular skies such as those already witnessed last night from other parts of the globe.
Firstly, we'll need the heavy cloud currently obscuring the heavens to disappear if we are to see an Aurora of any hue so it may not be the Irish green we need tonight but instead, we are relying on a bit of Irish luck. And, if the clouds do part, we'll be hoping for a shamrock shaped corona or two......now that would be fitting on today of all days:-)
Come on weather gods, do your bit for St Patrick!!
