SKYWATCHERS in the Staffordshire Moorlands had a real treat on last night (Thursday, February 27) when the Northern Lights could be seen from parts of the area.

The natural phenomenon, which is caused by particle collisions in the Earth's atmosphere, is normally only seen as far south as northern Scotland.

Here are some pictures which were taken by Angie Walters from Morridge, near Thorncliffe, just outside of Leek between 8pm and 10pm.

Did you take any pictures of the Northern Lights from the Staffordshire Moorlands last night? If you would like to share them with our readers, please email them to belinda.hargreaves@thepostandtimes.co.uk
