Northern Lights Plane

The Northern Lights – also known as the Aurora Borealis – are an amazing light display that occurs when the sun hurls solar flares, containing charged particles, millions of miles into space. When these particles meet Earth’s atmosphere, they collide with gasses and create the stunning green glow. It is usually a vibrant green, but you can also see rare colors of red and blue at times of very high activity. ​ The Auroras are coloring Arctic skies from 80-90 % of the dark nights. It is more challenging to witness the lights from the ground as clouds often block the visibility.
