The Northern Lights have once again been captured in stunning pictures over a Suffolk town. 

The aurora borealis was seen across the county and was visible to the naked eye.

The Northern Lights were captured across Suffolk skies last month

There are also a number of great places to spot the Northern Lights in the county including Walberswick, Dunwich and Shingle Street

Jackie Gillman-Dace also captured stunning pictures of the Northern Lights in Bury St Edmunds. 

Aurora is caused by atoms and molecules in our atmosphere colliding with particles from the sun, according to the Royal Museums Greenwich.

The wavy patterns of light are caused by the lines of force in the earth's magnetic field, and the different colours are made by different gasses - the green is characteristic of oxygen, while the purple, blue or pink are caused by nitrogen.
