Some spectacular images were captured of the Northern Lights over the county last night. . . and eagle-eyed county residents might just be able to catch a glimpse of the phenomenon again tonight.

The beautiful Aurora Borealis was observed across the UK last night with sightings in East Lothian in locations such as North Berwick, Dunbar and East Linton.

While the lights were thought to be at their most prominent last night, the Met Office has forecast that some sightings may be possible in Scotland this evening.

The Met Office said: “It is presumed that the majority of the enhanced aurora seen overnight on November 5 into November 6 has now passed, with only a chance of aurora sightings expected across northern Scotland for the remainder of November 6 and perhaps into November 7. Thereafter aurora sightings are expected to become unlikely.”

While the lights may not be as visible in the county this evening, there remains a chance of seeing them.

The Met Office said that the best conditions to view the lights are when the sky is dark and clear of any clouds.
