Two leading Aurora alert websites are predicting a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights across the North-east tonight.
AuroraWatch UK, a site ran by Lancaster University, has rated tonight’s geomagnetic activity as amber.
According to their rating system this corresponds to “Aurora likely to be visible by eye from Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland; possibly visible from elsewhere in the UK. Photographs of aurora are likely from anywhere in the UK.”
Meanwhile, Aurora-Service.eu is showing that it may be possible to see the Northern lights as far south as Manchester.
Of course, as with all astronomical phenomena, viewing the Aurora Borealis is very dependent on cloud cover.
But, if you’ve got clear skies overhead, you look to be in with a good chance tonight.
If you take any pictures of the Northern Lights tonight we would love to feature them on our website and Facebook page, e-mail them to email@example.com
