What is an aurora?

If you’ve ever been near the North or South Pole, you could be in for a very special treat, as the aurora in these places clearly illuminate the night sky.

Even though auroras are best seen at night, they are actually caused by the Sun, according to NASA.

When electrically charged particles from the Sun and solar winds enter Earth’s atmosphere, they interact with gases in the atmosphere.

When particles interact with gases, it results in an astonishing display of light in the sky. Oxygen gives green and red light. Nitrogen glows in blue and purple.
