The aurora borealis or Northern Lights have been spotted as far south as North Norfolk.
The brightly-coloured patterns in the sky are caused by highly-charged particles from the sun interacting with the Earth's atmosphere and its magnetic field.
The aurora are more commonly seen in more northern latitudes.
"Occasionally there are large explosions on the Sun and huge amounts of magnetically charged particles are thrown out into space (Coronal Mass Ejections). If these particles travel towards Earth they interact with the Earth’s magnetic field and increase global geomagnetic activity. The increased activity releases energy into the atmosphere giving off light in the process, which we call the Northern Lights or the aurora borealis."
This week has seen two Coronal Mass Ejections from the sun; the first arrived on Thursday night with the second on Friday night.
The Met Office said the combined effect increased the chances of seeing the Northern Lights in Britain.
