Parts of Scotland could be in for a spectacular Northern Lights display this evening.
Clear skies in the most northern areas of the country are more likely to witness the show in the night sky.
Tayside and Fife could be treated to the Aurora – but only if the area remains free from cloud.
BBC forecasters are predicting clear conditions for the “northern half of (the) UK” this evening.
The website Aurora Forecast said: “Aurora borealis activity is currently high. Weather permitting, very nice northern lights displays would be visible directly overhead in most northern communities.”
The site adds that the “geomagnetic field is expected to be at active to major storm levels” from Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
BBC Weather Watchers tweeted: “Potential for Aurora sightings tonight, especially if you’re in N Scot. Clear skies for northern half of UK for most of the night.”

October is one of the best months to spot the Northern Lights, which were seen across Scotland on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
The Aurora is a phenomenon caused by the interaction of high-energy particles and neutral atoms in Earth’s atmosphere – causing breathtaking spectacles in the night sky.
