The Northern Lights are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun's atmosphere. Variations in colour are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. Auroral displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink are the most common. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet have been reported.

Northern Lights over Norway

This stunning Aurora Borealis photo was taken in Norway by Tommy Eliassen. The stripes in the sky of red and green contrast vividly; the perfect reflection of the sky in the sea magnifies the strange lighting effect.

With this picture of the Northern Lights, Norway's Fredrik Broms was a runner-up in the Earth and Space category of the Royal Observatory's annual space photography contest.

Place: Runner-up. The shifting lights of the Aurora Borealis can take on many shapes and forms as they are moulded by the Earth’s complex magnetic field. Sheets and planes of glowing gas appear to be twisted into a giant vortex above Grøtfjord in Norway.
