Aurore boréale

The aurora borealis lights the nights sky in Alaska's Brooks range, arctic, Alaska. You light, light, light up the sky to show me You are with me. Beauty of God

An aurora is a natural light display in the sky (from the Latin word aurora, "sunrise" or the Roman goddess of dawn), predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Auroras are caused by charged particles, mainly electrons and protons, entering the atmosphere from above causing ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents, and consequent optical emissions.
