Stunning images of the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis, which could be seen across parts of the United Kingdom, were taken at Lough Neagh in Northern Ireland on Monday night.

The colorful phenomenon was visible across Scotland and Northern Ireland, and as far south as Oxfordshire. The Aurora Borealis appears as the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the earth’s atmosphere and charged particles released from the sun.
