Aurora borealis

What are the Northern Lights?

Aurora Borealis presents the most beautiful and enchanting scene, and people come from different places to experience such a delightful thing. In reality, Northern Lights result from colliding with charged particles emitted from the Sun’s atmosphere between gaseous particles on the earth’s attitude. Color variations are attributable to the form of colliding gas particles. A pale greenish-yellowish is the most common auroral color, produced by oxygen molecules about 60 miles above the ground. Rare all-red aurora at heights of up to 200 miles is created by high altitude oxygen. Aurora blue or pure-red Nitrogen provides.

The dazzling dancing light is visible in the northern and southern hemispheres over the magnetic poles. They are known to the north as “Aurora borealis” and south as “Aurora australis.”
Auroral appears in different colors, even though the most common color is pale green and pink. There were recorded shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and purple. The Lights are in several shapes, from streams, arcs, curtains, or fire-fighting rays that light up the sky with a glimmer. 

Where are the Northern Lights?

Since the phenomena are near the magnet pole, Northern lights in the western hemisphere have been seen as far south as New Orleans, although similar places to the east never experience the mysterious lights. But in the north-west regions of Canada, particularly in Yukon, Nunavut, North-West Territories, and Alaska, the most suitable places to see the light (in North America). The northern tip of Greenland and Iceland, the north coast of Norway, and the coastal waters north of Siberia are also visible from the Auroral Display. In a ring around Antarctica and the Southern Indigenous Ocean, the southern aurora is not always observed.

The temperature is 27 million degrees Fahrenheit in the middle of the Sun (15 million degrees Celsius). The sun bubbles and burns as the temperature on its surface fall and increases. Particles from the sunspot fields, hurtling in space plasma particles known as the solar wind, escape from the star. It takes about 40 hours for these winds to get to Earth. If it is, it can trigger the dramatic pictures called the aurora borealis.

Best time to see the northern lights

But it isn’t only as simple as gazing skyward – when watching the Northern Lights; it also features lunar cycles, cloud cover, light pollution, and solar activity. Although some are seasonal or regulated days or hours ahead, other events are fluctuating. The speed that the aurora travels often means they materialize as though they were no longer occurring. Simply put, cloud cover is the main obstacle. You have a great chance that you will see the aurora when it is clear, so booking a four or 5-night trip will enhance your chance that you will see the light of your life.

You shouldn’t take the light for granted – a natural phenomenon like the weather, after all – you can still witness magical light during the Polar Night in Northern Norway. You will see the sunset’s lovely colors in the south and a beautiful midnight blue in the northern sky on clear days. The landscape is bathed in a glassy blue color in “the blue hour” at dusk. When the weather is cold and dry, the aurora boreal is at its best.
