Northern Lights light up skies above Lothians
People across the Lothians have been treated to a rare and spectacular glimpse of the Northern Lights.
Spectacular red and green lights of the Aurora Borealis, the result of a strong magnetic storm, lit up skies along the east coast with excited aurora-spotters taking to social media to share their photos of the natural phenomenon.
The stunning natural light show revealed itself to people all across Scotland with people turning their eyes to the heavens in Glasgow, Orkney and Aberdeenshire, while stargazers also reported seeing the lights as far south as Gloucestershire, Essex and Norfolk.
