Storms of this scale could potentially impact infrastructure, including satellites and the power grid, the NOAA warned.

According to BBC Weather, clear skies make a sighting possible from most parts of the UK, with people in Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern parts of England having a higher likelihood.

Elizabeth Rizzini, BBC Weather presenter, said: "We've got a couple of Weather Watcher pictures from Kent and Hastings already.

"It's fantastic conditions, the skies are pretty clear at the moment.

"There could be some low cloud that comes into East Anglia and the south west of England and Lincolnshire coast, but generally skies are pretty clear at the moment."

"Tonight's the night but it will probably be visible tomorrow as well," she added.

The Met Office said that "enhanced activity" is expected to persist, but at reduced levels, through Saturday night into Sunday.

In the US, the NOAA said the lights may be seen as far south as Alabama and northern California.
