THE Northern Lights could once again be seen in Scotland on Monday evening following a stunning display on Sunday night.

The north of the country was the best place to catch the phenomenon as cloudy skies prevented some in the south of England from getting a glimpse.

Drew McGrath, 36, was among those to catch the lights dancing over his home in the village of Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye.

The teacher told the PA news agency: “This was the second time seeing the colours with the naked eye.

Greens and reds very clear and strong. Very similar to last night which was amazing too.

“The sheer height of them is hard to explain, they are just beautiful to watch and share.

“Heading to the shore I met with lots of folk in the village who were out to see them.”

Judy Murray also tweeted an image of the lights after they were spotted in Dunblane.

Head of space weather at the Met Office Mark Gibbs had previously said it was “optimistic to expect clear sightings two nights in a row”.

He added that the combination of a cloud-free sky, clear air, and a dim moon allowed members of the public to see over long distances with little light pollution, and spot the Northern Lights.

The activity was the result of a solar storm, which Gibbs said was not unusual for this point in the solar cycle.

PA photographer Owen Humphreys said he had “not seen picture of the Northern Lights that strong and that far south in a very long time”.
