How does the aurora borealis (the Northern Lights) work? Read the article below
“Aurora is the name given to light emitted when the upper atmosphere is hit by energetic charged particles, principally electrons, travelling along magnetic field lines. “
What are northern lights?
“The aurora was named after the Roman goddess of dawn, and was long thought to be produced by sunlight reflected from polar snow and ice, or refracted light much like rainbows.”
