Forming of an Aurora
Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis
The northern and southern lights as you can figure are best visible in different parts of the world. Like in the names the northern lights or Aurora Borealis are most visible if you are in the northern part of the world, and over the north pole. The southern lights or Aurora Australis are most visible on if you're on the southern part of the world and over the south pole. The auroras have specific colors that you will often see in the light shows, those are pink, green, yellow, blue, violet and sometimes orange and white.
