Could Northern Lights appear over the UK again tonight?

News Correspondent

If you stepped outside late last night you may have witnessed a rare and spectacular display. Auroras – bands of pink and green light across the night sky – which are normally only seen close to the poles.

But because of an extreme solar storm, last night the Northern Lights were spotted right through the UK and across the Northern Hemisphere.

And meteorologists say there may be a second chance to see them tonight.
