Aurora Borealis

An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar lights or northern lights, is a natural light display in the Earth’s sky.  They are predominantly seen in the Arctic and Antarctic regions.  The aurora is an incredible light show caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen.
