The trip to northern lights, also called the aurora borealis trip, are a beautiful show of lights that can be seen at night in the northern hemisphere. The aurora australis, or “southern lights,” are what people in the southern hemisphere call them.
The northern and southern lights are called aurora polaris, which means “polar lights,” because they happen close to Earth’s magnetic poles.
How auroras form:
The discharge of charged particles (protons and electrons) into space by the Sun is referred to as the solar wind. The solar wind is pushed around Earth by its magnetic field, which is unseen to the naked eye.
