Aurora - The Colorful And Amazing Phenomena In The Sky

views: 724

Aurora is one of the most amazing and colorful phenomena in the sky.

According to North Lights Centre it is actually the collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere.

It can be seen in North Pole, which they called northern lights or dawn of the north and in South Pole, the southern lights or dawn of the south. It appears in different colors: red, yellow, orange, blue, purple and most of the time, it is green.  There are five different categories of aural forms: rayed arc, corona, homogeneous arc, rising vapor column and active aurora.

Here are some of the most beautiful images of Auroras from different photographers, who luckily caught these amazing moments.
