What is Aurora Borealis ?
Waves of electrically charged plasma, known as solar flares, come streaming towards Earth at the speed of around 4 million miles per hour. When they hit the Earth’s upper atmosphere, they emit visible light and are diverted towards the Earth’s poles by its magnetic field. The northern aurora borealis is known as northern lights and the light that moves over the southern pole is known as aurora australis.
Aurora Borealis this year, is expected to cause dazzling display of lights across the Artic and even across Michigan, Washington, New York and Dakotas with some chance of the lights reaching Pennsylvania, Iowa and Kansas as well. The sights depend on certain factors like moon-lit night, cloud cover an city light pollution.
