The Northern lights are collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. They can be seen above the magnetic poles of the northern hemisphere where they are known as ‘Aurora Borealis’ and the southern hemisphere, known as ‘Aurora australis’.
These Northern lights appear in many colors including red, yellow, blue, green and violet, but the most common are pink and pale green. They appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow. The best places for seeing the beauty of these lights are in the northwestern parts of Canada, particularly the Yukon, Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Alaska, also in Greenland and Iceland, the northern coast of Norway and over the coastal waters north of Siberia. Auroral activity happens every eleven years. The last one was this year.
