Aurora: Dancing lights in the night sky
One of the most fantastic natural phenomenon, the Aurora, has been listed in the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. These mesmerising lights in the sky that occur mostly in the polar regions have long been a subject of study and mythology as well. Named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, the polar lights, as they are sometimes called, illuminate the horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the Sun were rising from an unusual direction. Here’s a look at what magic these ‘dancing lights’ can about in an otherwise regular night sky.
A display of the northern lights in Erikslund, Medelad in Sweden overnight. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the Aurora Borealis and in the southern hemisphere it is called the Aurora Australis.
This phenomenon is visible only in parts of th nordics,especially northern Norway if I am not mistaken.Certain parts of Sweden too! This beauti****l nature's light and laser show would compensate for all those snowy dark days in the north I guess ;)
Except for the climate(which I being from the topics may not be able to appreciate too much)pretty much everything is perfect in the nordic countries...low debt,good growth,small populations,very high HDI and per capita income,great innovation...they have go**** all right!
we Indians OTOH just have to emulate our illustrious and g****ncestors to become a developed country!
Sorry for going off topic,arora is very interesting phenom!
Aurora formation is natural occurrence, it has nothing to do with increasing or decreasing magnetic field or depletion of ozone layer or anything else. This planet is not that weak or unsustainable of these natural occurrences.
There is nothing called pole shifting as the poles are static that is why we have longer or shorter nights and days at polar regions
