Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights For Everyone To See

January 31, 2009

If you haven’t had occasion to visit the North Pole or been lucky enough to see them from a passenger jet (far warmer than the North Pole), now you can, in a small picture, time lapse kind of way, see the aurora borealis for yourself thanks to Astronomy North. The truth is, you have to see them live to be sure it isn’t some kind of photography trickery. Scientists will tell you that the lights are magnetic energy set off by charged particles from the sun hitting earth’s atmosphere. If you say so. They are on the A-list of natural displays.
