The Cause of Aurora Borealis

Charged Particles from the sun hit atoms in Earth's atmosphere causing the electrons to go into a higher energy state, and when the electrons go back to a lower state they send out a photon.

The Best Conditions to Watch Aurora Borealis.

Where - at Finland's Kakslauttanen Resort

when - It is hard to tell when the northern lights will happen.

Aurora Borealis vs. Aurora Australis

How do the Northern Lights Get Their Colors?

The colors of the northern lights are made by contact between particles of high-energy and neutral atoms in Earth's atmosphere.
