The Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the Northern Lights, have been visible in the UK this week.

Last night people in north Norfolk managed to catch a glimpse of the phenomenon.

Dan Holley, a weather forecaster for Weatherquest, said it could be visible in Suffolk this evening.

He said: “It could potentially be visible but more through a long camera exposure rather than through your own eyes. It is not often visible with the naked eye and when it is it is a faint grey and white beam of coloured light and not green – however if you took a picture it would look green.”

However, it cannot be guaranteed due to the weather conditions – it might not be clear enough weather for it to be visible this far south.

Mr Holley added: “For a chance to see it you will need a clear view of the northern horizon, away from light pollution so away from any towns. Find high ground and take a look at the northern horizon.”

If the Northern lights are active enough to be seen they should be there throughout the night, however Mr Holley advised taking a look between 7-8pm.

If you manage to take a picture of the Northern Lights send them to this email address.
