Forecasters say Scotland could be in for some stunning displays in the night sky on Tuesday evening – off the back of a day of stunning summery weather.
The Met Office said geomagnetic storm activity combined with clear skies could lead to Northern Lights displays above Scotland overnight.
And locals across Tayside and Fife could be perfectly placed to view the aurora.
The skies are forecast to remain clear above Dundee, Perth, Angus, the Mearns and the Kingdom.
The Met Office tweeted: “Moderate geomagnetic storms may lead to aurora sightings in parts of Scotland tonight where the skies stay clear.”

The Northern Lights are created by disturbances in the Earth’s magnetosphere caused by a flow of particles from the Sun, and are usually concentrated around the Earth’s magnetic poles.
