What are the Northern Lights?
The Northern Lights, also known as aurora borealis are essentially a natural light show that is caused by collisions of electrically charged particles that are given off by the sun, which end up colliding with different gases such as nitrogen and oxygen. The lights can often appear in many different colors, with shades of pale green and pink being the most commonly sighted. If you’re extra lucky, you might even catch them in vibrant shades of red, yellow, or even blue. The patterns of the Northern Lights can also differ, which makes seeing them over and over again a very unique experience.
