The Northern Lights could be seen across Scotland over the weekend, with some lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the amazing display.
Sunday night saw a “coronal hole high speed stream” – meaning in places with clear skies the phenomenon, also known as Aurora Borealis, could be seen and captured on camera.
The lights are caused by activity on the surface of the sun and are created when a steam of charged particles, known as solar wind, is released.
It then travels through the solar system and when it reaches the outer atmosphere of Earth, it collides with the charged particles which exist in our magnetosphere.
The display made for some incredible photographs, such as those sent to STV News which can be seen here.
The Met Office revealed the display is likely to visible across the country again on Monday evening.
The weather service tweeted: “A coronal hole high speed stream arrived this evening combined with a rather fast coronal mass ejection leading to #Aurora sightings across the UK.
“The Northern Lights are also likely to be seen again on Monday night.”
