Pinkish glows in the Alpine sky. A new episode of northern lights took place on the night of Friday May 10 to Saturday May 11 in the Southern Alps, while the last one dated from November 2023, BFM DICI noted.

Once again, the Northern Lights were visible to the naked eye on Friday evening from the Hautes-Alpes and the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence.

The phenomenon affected the whole of France overnight, from Alsace to Marseille. These northern lights are the result of a solar flare, observed this Wednesday, and which hits our planet all weekend.
