NORTHERN parts of mainland Scotland and the Northern Isles may be able to see the aurora on October 25th.
Although clear skies are predicted for some of northern Scotland, other areas may experience occasional showers and cloud cover – so the Met Office recommends checking your local weather forecast before heading out to see the lights.
The website Aurora Forecast said: “Aurora borealis activity is currently high. Weather permitting, very nice northern lights displays would be visible directly overhead in most northern communities.”
The site adds that the “geomagnetic field is expected to be at active to major storm levels” from Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

These are the views on Orkney tonight, as just captured by the local Aurora Group’s Andy Wymer. They’re pretty neat! pic.twitter.com/3haXUOoZ1Y
