Those who have been lucky enough to witness the aurora borealis , say it is one of the most fascinating spectacles of nature. An Aurora starts with a fluorescent glow on the horizon. Then it decreases and an illuminated arc is formed – sometimes circles can emerge. The explanation of how the aurora borealis is formed is related to solar activity and with the composition and characteristics of our earth’s atmosphere.
