Yorkshire could be getting a third night of the Northern Lights shining in the night skies.

A weather expert has said tonight we could be feasting our eyes on the beautiful Aurora Borealis once more, after the phenomena was seen across the county on Friday and Saturday.

NOAA (The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) says optimal viewing time for the aurora is generally within an hour or two of midnight—so between 10pm and 2am tonight.

Channel 4 weather presenter Liam Dutton said on Twitter: “**LATEST NOAA SPACE PREDICTION** Further coronal mass ejections (CMEs) expected to arrive on Sunday. This means another strong or extreme geomagnetic storm is likely.

“Therefore, there may be another UK-wide showing of the aurora borealis on Sunday night - cloud permitting.” And he later added: “Geomagnetic activity will increase again today, however, as with last night, peak activity may not coincide with darkness.

"There’ll also be much more cloud around tonight, with clear spells limited. So, the chances of spotting the will be reduced somewhat.”

Here's a list of great spots to see the Northern Lights in Yorkshire. With choice locations, including Ilkley Moor, Holme Moss in Holmfirth, and Tan Hill Inn in the Yorkshire Dales.
