13/05/2024 - The Northern lights, also known as aurora borealis, could be seen right across the UK on Friday evening thanks to one of the strongest geomagnetic storms in years.

Sightings of the Northern Lights are usually limited to northern parts of the UK, and the last time an extreme geomagnetic storm hit Earth was in 2003, so Friday's event was rare.

The extreme geomagnetic storm that happened on Friday was categorised as the highest strength, known as G5.

Stargazing in London is often tricky however using our cameras meant we could also take part in the spectacle.
