The UK was given a unique opportunity over the last few days to get to see the Northern Lights without making an expensive trip over to the Arctic Circle.
The Northern Lights are a rare sight and usually, you’d have to travel all the way to Iceland to enjoy the colourful performance in the sky. But, this photographer caught them a little closer to home.
Photographer Charlotte Graham captured a stunning image of the Northern Lights over Whitby Pier in what is an incredible opportunity.
Charlotte shared the rare sighting on social media with the caption: “Well I shall not #forget that for a #long #time“
Users were quick to show their appreciation for the Northern Lights shot in Whitby with one user writing: “Now that is a beauty”. Another agreed writing: “stunning, what an experience.”
