A man has taken incredible pictures of the aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights, over Knuzden.
According to the Met Office, stargazers will have another chance to see the phenomenon this evening (September 19).
John Walsh took the incredible pictures on Monday, September 18.
He said: “I took the pictures at around 8pm. You can see northern lights from anywhere in this area under the right conditions.
“I have photographed them many times. I'm an astronomer and I follow these things very passionately.”
Since posting the pictures to Facebook hundreds of people have liked, shared and commented on them.
One person said: “Fantastic, John. Just amazing.”
Another said: “Fantastic pictures. I’ve been getting loads of shots of the aurora from friends in Scotland the last couple of nights.
“Would love to send them one of these.”
The Met Office say the northern lights could be visible again tonight until 6am but suggest the cloud coverage may prevent this.
A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “The aurora was seen last night and despite a lower chance tonight, some northern areas may catch a glimpse. For most though, it's likely to be too cloudy to see the northern lights.”
