The sky was brimming with beautiful colours on Wednesday night as the Northern Lights shimmered across Scotland.
People lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the spectacular natural phenomenon last night have been sharing their Aurora Borealis photos on social media.
But the show might not be over yet.
According to the Met Office, the likelihood of seeing the aurora over the next few weeks is on the increase as two space weather phenomena coincide.
This is because the sun, which goes through an 11-year solar cycle, is now in the declining phase of this cycle. During this time, the chances of geomagnetic disturbances is higher, which in turn can bring about the aurora in the upper atmosphere.
The results are stunning. Have a look at some of the shots Scots captured across Scotland.

Stargazers assemble for more Northern Lights, shooting stars and a glimpse of Venus
Jo Farrow, STV weather presenter, says eastern Scotland will have the best chance of spotting the Northern Lights tonight.
“The glorious clear skies won’t last for everyone tonight,” she said. “Eastern Scotland is most likely to stay dry and clear Thursday night.
“The west coast will see cloud increasing through the night with light rain for the Western Isles.
“Otherwise, it is worth a look north again tonight but wrap up warm and give your eyes about 20 minutes to adjust.
"Also keep an eye out for shooting stars this evening as the Draconid meteor shower peaks tonight.
“And, if you do have a clear early morning sky, the crescent moon is accompanied by Venus and Jupiter, which is visible to the naked eye.
“I saw Venus myself this morning against the clear blue skies - it was really clear and near to the moon.”
