He finally achieved his dream and has produced a moving YouTube video of the breath-taking sight.

The Northern Lights are a stunning sight when witnessed first-hand. Their scientific name is Aurora Borealis. An aurora is a naturally occurring display of lights in the sky, caused by charged particles entering the atmosphere.

Keating explains in his video how he waited night after night in the cold wind up on Slieve League in Co Donegal. Eventually, after several lonely nights, he finally got what he was waiting for on 17th March 2015.
