12-10-10 Northern Lights
Kinlochbervie and the surrounding settlements were treated to a beautiful performance by the Northern Lights yesterday evening.

In fact it seems most of the Western Isles and north of Scotland were able to see them.

Also known as the Aurora Borealis, they're caused by the interaction of the Earth's magnetic field with ionised particles in the atmosphere.

This stunning photo was taken the same night by Aonghas Van Sant on the Isle of Harris:
