It's one of those phenomenon people dream of seeing in their lifetime, just not everyone can afford to make it to Canada, Iceland or beyond. Last night, if you were in Northern Ireland, all you had to do was walk out your front door. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's breathtaking. Here are just some of the amazing pictures posted to twitter.

Did anyone manage to catch a glimpse of Aurora Borealis last night, or have you had the pleasure of seeing it elsewhere on the planet?
