Aurora Borealis, or The Northern Lights, is nature’s most fascinating phenomenon. I think it’s almost magic, considering all the factors that have to come into play to make this stunning event take place. People see pictures and they cannot believe their own eyes, which is why people think it must be a Photoshop effect.
However, if you though those colorful fluorescent ribbons dancing in the sky cannot be seen on this planet, you were wrong. Nature’s own gigantic light show, when Earth meets Heaven, can be also scientifically explained as collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres, and you’re more than welcome check it out yourselves; here are the best places to enjoy the Aurora Borealis!
