Fire in the Skye Sky

This image is featured on the website of the West Highland Free Press with the caption: 'Spectacular aurora  borealis were photographed by Andy Stables above Lower Milovaig in Skye late on Monday 26th September. The lightshow was caused when a powerful coronal mass ejection from the sun hit the earth's upper atmosphere earlier that day.'
