The Mystical Universe – Northern Lights

Aurora Borealis

Aurora Borealis is a beautiful light show that the universe has to offer our planet.

Aurora is a latin word for “Dawn” and refers to roman goddess Aurora.
Boreas is the Greek name for the “North Wind”
We call it the Northern Lights!

“When charged particles of the sun gets trapped in the earth’s magnetic field, something magical happens. A light show you will never forget”.

The best places to see the northern lights are – 

  • Iceland

  • Yellowknife, Canada

  • Fairbanks, Alaska

  • Tromso, Norway

  • Finland

  • Northern Sweden

  • Tasmania

  • New zealand

  • Greenland

You can go and watch the magic round the year, but the best time to capture the beauty of lights is around equinoxes.

The magic is not just found here, there also are Southern Lights, which is called “Aurora Australis”.

Auroral displays appear in many colours, Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet, although green and blue being the most common.

The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers and shooting rays that light up the sky. This makes it glow like magic.

Even researchers can’t say exactly when the swirls and the ribbons of lights will appear, you just have to wait for the perfect time to see it. But, hey! If you are so curious to watch it, universe has a way to make it happen.
