The amazing Northern Lights, officially known in the Northern hemisphere as Aurora Borelias, are natural phenomena that features amazing colored light displays over the Earth. Although they look calm, the Northern Lights are produced by millions of explosions of magnetic energy. In 1621, a French scientist, Pierre Gassendi, saw the lights in the north and named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora. He added the word “borealis” for the Roman god of the north wind, Boreas. Through the following photos I have selected for you, enjoy in the magical view of this magnificent colored lights written in the sky.
