Everything You Need to Know About the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights

The splendid moving lights of the aurora are really collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the world’s environment. The lights are seen over the northern and southern halves of the globe. This phenomenon is known as ‘Aurora borealis’ in the north and ‘Aurora Australis’ in the south. The term ‘Aurora borealis’ comes from the Latin Aurora, meaning “Roman goddess of the dawn” plus Latin Borealis, meaning “north.” This is why the Aurora Borealis is also called the Northern Lights.
