Newark Advertiser reader photos of the Northern Lights above Newark and Sherwood following rare solar storm making Aurora Borealis visible across most of UK





An unexpected sight appeared in the skies above the district last night with a rare showing of the Northern Lights.

The Aurora Borealis was caused by a solar storm making the cosmic phenomenon, which is usually only spotted in the most northerly parts of the UK, visible across most of the country.

Those that missed missed it will have another chance to see the show tonight, with the Met Office saying increased solar activity from the sun will continue tonight, with the best time to catch the lights between 10pm and 2am.
