Aurora borealis – what is it and how is it formed?

The aurora borealis is a light phenomenon that occurs mainly near the North and South Poles. The scientific name for the aurora borealis is Northern lights Within the Arctic and Southern Dawn Near the South Pole.

This phenomenon occurs when energetic gas particles sent by the Sun hit the Earth’s upper atmosphere at high speed. The planet is protected from “attack” by its magnetic field. It redirects molecules toward the north and south poles, and the molecules interact with gases in our atmosphere, causing the distinctive multicolored lights to appear.
