What Are The Northern Lights And How Do They Occur?

These bright dancing hues of green and blue lights are visible above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as ‘Aurora borealis’ in the north and ‘Aurora australis’ in the south. They occur due to the collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere and charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere.
