aw-dropping views of the northern lights taken from around the UK.

An aurora is a natural light display in Earth's sky, predominantly seen in high-latitude regions around the Arctic and Antarctic.

Auroras display dynamic patterns of brilliant lights that appear as curtains, rays, spirals, or dynamic flickers covering the entire sky.

They are the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by the solar wind.
