Northern Lights – Bucket List

β€œI looked, and I saw a windstorm coming out of the north–an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light.”
~ Old Testament – The Bible ~

Imagine gazing up in the night sky and witnessing a dazzling display of dancing lights.Β However, this phenomenon is not an illusion, but natural lights in earths atmosphere called the𝑡𝒐𝒓𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒏 π‘³π’Šπ’ˆπ’‰π’•π’”Β or A𝑨𝒖𝒓𝒐𝒓𝒂 π‘©π’π’“π’†π’‚π’π’Šπ’” 𝒐𝒓 𝑷𝒐𝒍𝒂𝒓 π‘³π’Šπ’ˆπ’‰π’•π’”Β mainly found in the skies up North.

– The Northern Lights begin high in the Earth’s atmosphere (at altitudes from 60 to more than 250 miles).
– Solar winds from the Sun’s atmosphere approaches the Earth’s magnetic field.
– These charged particles (protons and neutrons) collide with the gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere releasing a tremendous amount of energy which forms the spectacular Northern Lights.

Yes! The Northern Lights have a cousin in the South Pole! Their southern counterpart (Southern Lights) are known as 𝑨𝒖𝒓𝒐𝒓𝒂 π‘¨π’–π’”π’•π’“π’‚π’π’Šπ’”Β and have almost identical features.

Since the atmosphere and magnetic field is weaker at both the north and South Pole, northern/southern lights will appear there.Β

– Each color of northern lights you see in the sky will signify a little bit on how they were made.
– The colours vary depending on the amount of energy and elements released and no two light displays are the same!
– For instance, if oxygen is released, a greenish-yellow light is released, which is the most common type. If nitrogen is emitted, a blue light would be visible.Β

✴️ Aurora is the Roman goddess of dawn and Boreas is the Greek term for the north wind, hence the name Aurora Borealis.
✴️ Astronomers believe that other planets have their own auroras as well.
✴️ The International Space Station is at the same altitude as the Northern Lights which makes astronauts can view the lights from there.
✴️ In Finland, the name for the Northern Lights is revontulet, literally translated as ‘fire fox’. Legend says that Arctic foxes produced the Aurora.
