PICTURES: Geomagnetic storm causes incredible Northern Lights display across Scotland

The Northern Lights above Scotland last night.
The Northern Lights above Scotland last night.

Tayside and Fife was treated to an incredible Northern Lights display last night into this morning.

A geomagnetic storm caused the stunning show of aurora borealis in the night sky, with snappers across Scotland braving the freezing cold to capture it.

The Northern Lights were seen as far spotted by stargazers as far south as Ireland – and there could be more tonight.

Below are some of the best photos of last night’s aurora.

This brilliant image of the scenes in Perth last night was captured by Michael White Photography.

He posted: “The Northern Lights just lit up the sky across Scotland this evening. Luckily for me I was able to nip down and get this shot of our braw looking skyline. Especially since I’ve missed every opportunity over the last few years for a good shot of the Aurora.”

This photo, taken in Dundee, was captured by The Courier’s very own Kris Miller.

Nicola MacInnes took this great photo of the aurora in Perthshire, near Balbeggie.

The Northern Lights are a phenomenon caused by the interaction of high-energy particles and neutral atoms in Earth’s atmosphere – causing breathtaking spectacles in the night sky.
