The aurora borealis once again lit up Poland’s skies. Although it was obscured by clouds in some places, in many areas there were excellent conditions for observing the phenomenon. A multi-colored light show even appeared in the south of the country.
On Sunday night into Monday, the northern lights will once again appear in the night sky. As Karol Wojcicki, famous astronomer and author of the blog “With Your Head in the Stars,” said on Sunday afternoon, there were excellent conditions for observing the aurora borealis — all over Poland.
The northern lights through the eyes of reporters 24
At Kontakt 24 we received many beautiful photos and recordings of the aurora borealis illuminating the sky. They were caught in Pomerania and in the southern regions of the country – Lesser Poland and Podkarpacie. 24 reporters were happy with the colors of the aurora borealis, as the sky in some areas was filled with shades of pink, purple and red.

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 speeds (up to 72 million kilometers per hour). 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.

This passion seamlessly translates into her problem-solving skills, with Echo often drawing inspiration from melodies and rhythms. A voracious reader, she dives deep into literature, using stories to influence her own hardcore writing.
