A photographer captured a stunning timelapse of the northern lights over Scotland on September 26.
This footage taken by Sylvan Buckley shows the aurora borealis shimmering behind Dunure Castle in South Ayrshire.
Scotland lies in the same latitude as Norway and Alaska, which famously see the phenomenon.
The best time to see the northern lights in Scotland is in the fall and winter, and while they can be visible anywhere in Scotland, the best place to see them is usually in the north, according to Visit Scotland.
“I got an alert that there was some possibility of aurora activity. [It] was nice to finally see the northern lights again as it had been a wee while for me,” Buckley said in a Facebook post. Credit: Sylvan Buckley via Storyful
