Aurora Borealis

Active selection:    
It often happens in the Arctic Circle that strange lights flicker in the sky. This phenomenon is called Aurora Borealis. It is named after the Roman goddess of the dawn (Aurora) and the Greek name for the north wind (Boreas). It is caused by the entry of solar particles into the earth's magnetic field. It is most common in September and October.
