When they say "the Northern hemisphere" what ranges do they mean? I thought at 27° I was possibly too low to see any NLC's.

As Sandra says, NLC do seem to be visible further south each year, with recordings in southern France last year.

Easy to mistake before you seen it for the first time, I went a couple of years before I knowingly saw any. Once I had seen those incredible ghostly ripples in the early hours, I don't think I will ever mistake them again.
