The Northern Lights could be visible above Largs tonight thanks to a solar storm. 

The storm, known as a Coronal Mass Ejection, creates a massive burst of material from the sun which can cause a geomagnetic storm. 

This in turn can cause the Northern Lights to be visible further afield than normal. 

Scotland, the north of England and Northern Ireland could catch a glimpse of the phenomenon tonight. 

Residents in Ayrshire, Argyll, Aberdeenshire, Shetland and Orkney have the best chance of spotting the Aurora Borealis. 

A definite time has not been given for the sighting, but a good view will require limited cloud cover.
