The Northern Lights are set to shine over the UK tonight and as always, are especially bright in the northern half of the country - good news for us. However, the widespread thick fog could affect our chance to see the display.

Try out our top places to view the Northern Lights and if you're lucky enough to get a glimpse, make sure you tweet us your pictures @ITVBorder or email them to us: btvnews@itv.com

The best places to catch a glimpse in your area will be the Galloway Forest Park, an International Dark Sky Park, where sky-gazers have been able to see the milky way with the naked eye for centuries.

South of the border, the Cumbrian Lake District provides an ideal place to witness the astronomical event, with Allen Bank in Grasmere and Low Gillerthwaite Field Centre both designated as Dark Sky Discovery Sites.
