People across the Midlands were able to see a very rare sight last night as the sky turned red and green through the natural phenomenon which is the Northern Lights.
The Aurora Borealis lit up the skies as far south as Gloucestershire, the result of a strong magnetic storm.
These pictures of the spectacular light show were taken by Chris Burrage in Whixal in Shropshire, who said he'd never seen them there before.
The Northern Lights are usually visible in only the more northern parts of the UK, but a surge in geomagnetic activity last night led to them appearing much further south than usual.
Did you see the Northern lights in the East & West MIdlands? We'd love to see your photos - send them to email@example.com - or post them directly to our Facebook page.
