A "one night wonder" could see the Northern Lights return to the skies this weekend. 

The aurora borealis has been spotted over the county throughout the week with stunning images captured in places such as Dereham, Thetford, Wells and Blakeney. 

The Northern Lights are typically seen nearer to the Arctic Circle in locations such as Norway and Iceland and it is rare to see them in the UK. 

They are caused by particles from the sun entering the Earth's atmosphere at high speed.

"It is possible we will have a one night wonder."

They added that the phenomenon will only be observable through cameras and not to the naked eye. 

The best areas to observe the phenomenon are those with a north-facing horizon and lower light pollution at times when the sky is clear of clouds and rain. 

The forecast for the county on Saturday night is mostly dry with some mist and fog.
