The Northern Light

The Northern Lights are a light phenomenon that occurs when charged particles are hurled out from the sun and collide with the Earth's atmosphere..

The event takes place between 80 and 400 kilometres above the Earth's surface, and it is when electrons and protons collide with atmospheric gasses that the light show begins, filling the sky with the most amazing patterns that have fascinated us for centuries.
