Northern Lights sightings possible over East Lancashire
3:26pm Thursday 9th January 2014 in News
METEOROLOGISTS say people across East Lancashire have a better chance of glimpsing the Northern Lights tonight.
According to scientists, the light displays of the Aurora Borealis are of unusual intensity and are visible from much further south than normal.
Last night, the natural light display, which usually takes place in the Arctic and Antarctic regions, was visible as far south as the M4.
But scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said last night's display was weaker than expected and tonight presented a better opportunity for stargazers.
