Residents were treated to spectacular views of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) over Chorleywood in a recent display caused by high levels of solar activity.

It is run by scientists in the Space and Planetary Physics group at Lancaster University’s Department of Physics.

In the meantime, here are some photos over Chorleywood.
