N igel has been an active Amateur Astronomer for over 40 years and has been fortunate enough to have taken over 20,000 people to view the Aurora.

He is a member of the Chesterfield AS, where he was Director of Observations using the 18" Reflector there. The past owner of a private garden observatory housing a 10" Reflector, he used to regularly open this up to the public during exciting Astronomical events.

The lecture discusses the percentage of Auroral sightings plus many 'insider views' on the Northern Lights Flights he does, alongside Pete Lawrence, BBC Sky at Night Observing Expert.
