Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) from Glentress Forest near Peebles, Scottish Borders (by mikeyscope)
During the last solar maximum as a result of a very active sun the solar wind gave rise to spectacular auroral storms overhead as far south as Northumberland, this one photographed from the settling ponds in Glentress Forest near Peebles.
Glentress & Cardrona forests used to be a bit of an astro-haven for those interested in the night sky but in more recent years mountain biking and housing developments with associated light pollution have forced astronomers away from the area towards the Border Forest Park, Kielder Forest Park …& Galloway Forest Park.
