There's been a rare sighting of the skies lit up in pink and green overnight.

The Northern Lights - or Aurora Borealis - have been visible all over Ireland.

People right across the country stepped outside their doors late last night to experience the light display, which appeared more colourful if you took a picture of them on your phone.

Social media is flooded with images today with views of the sky from different locations across the region.

Make sure to head to the Midwest Radio Facebook page where we’ve posted one picture from a location in South Sligo, and over 300 people have shared their pictures in the comments below.

There’s also some great snaps shared on our Instagram account – just search for Midwest Radio!
