Amazing Auroras

Amazing Auroras

An aurora is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere (thermosphere). The charged particles originate in the magnetosphere and solar wind and, on Earth, are directed by the Earth's magnetic field into the atmosphere. They are also known as Northern or Southern Lights. I just think it looks amazing. Join TotallyCoolPix on Facebook, Twitter, join our Flickr Group or find us on Google+.
