You could be in with a chance of seeing one of the most beautiful - and elusive - natural phenomenons tonight.

The Northern Lights could be visible in our skies thanks to strong solar winds, according to the Met Office.

The best chance to see them is in northern Scotland, under clear skies - but there is a rare chance Huddersfield sky watchers will be able to see them.

The light show is formed when electrically charged particles of the atmosphere interact with solar flares from the sun and cause a disturbance in the atmosphere. The more disturbed the atmosphere, the brighter, and further south, the light show can be seen.

It's generally seen much further north near the Arctic circle - but on rare occasions can be spotted in the skies above us.

The video above was taken by Sarah Hall and Colin Campbell when the lights were seen above Rochdale last month.

First published by our sister paper the Manchester Evening News, the video shows the sky glowing a gorgeous green.
