By Jamie Condliffe on at

The Aurora Borealis may be a common site in some parts of the world, but the UK rarely gets to witness it in its full, saturated glory. Last night, however, a few lucky areas of the UK were treated to an impressive multicoloured light show.

The BBC reports that the Northern Lights could be seen strongly as far west as Anglesey in Wales — pictured below — and even in Oxfordshire in the south. The image above was actually captured along Hadrian’s Wall, close to the Scottish border.
