Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)

 

Due to recent eruptions from the Sun causing disruptions to Earth's magnetic field/currents etc, the appearance of the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) was reported to possibly be visible in the UK and strengthened the regular display that appears in the North.

Since I couldn't see it for myself (BOO) I thought I'd look up some images as they are a truly stunning sight and whilst I don't understand all the science behind this, I can appreciate how spectacular it would be to watch. Maybe next time...

Check out a selection of my favourite images of the Northern Lights below:
