Northern Lights above Cumbria
Last updated at 10:41, Saturday, 01 March 2014
A spectacular Northern Lights display on Thursday night was beautifully captured by photographers across Cumbria.
The News & Star's Stuart Walker captured the dazzling Aurora Borealis at the RSPB Geltsdale Reserve, near Hallbankgate, which has some of the darkest skies in the county.
The lights are caused by electrically charged particles from the Sun entering the Earth's atmosphere.

Have your say
Beautiful pictures, but what did the naked eye see?
I failed to see them on a clear night in Port Carlisle despite looking for hours. The shy was a bit pinker than usual but im not sure if that was the street lamps in gretna!
