A spectacular aurora borealis display

A spectacular aurora borealis display (northern lights) with vivid, red light. Aurorae are caused by the interaction between energetic charged particles coming from the Sun and molecules of gases in the upper atmosphere (about 100km). A stream of charged particles, known as the solar wind, flows continuously from the Suns corona towards interplanetary space at speeds of 400-500 km/s. These particles do not reach the Earths atmosphere due to the shielding effect of the Earths magnetic field. However, violent solar activities such as solar flares emit highly energetic particles which penetrate this shield and ionise molecules in the atmosphere

This print captures a truly mesmerizing spectacle of nature - a spectacular aurora borealis display, also known as the northern lights. The vivid, red light illuminates the night sky, creating an ethereal and enchanting scene. Aurorae are a result of the fascinating interaction between energetic charged particles from the Sun and molecules of gases in our upper atmosphere. These charged particles, carried by the solar wind flowing from the Sun's corona towards interplanetary space at incredible speeds, usually don't reach Earth's atmosphere due to our planet's protective magnetic field. However, during intense solar activities like solar flares, highly energetic particles manage to penetrate this shield and ionize molecules in our atmosphere. This process leads to the creation of these awe-inspiring displays that dance across polar regions. The photograph showcases not only the beauty but also highlights important scientific concepts such as electromagnetic effects and atmospheric phenomena. It serves as a reminder of how interconnected our world is with celestial events occurring millions of miles away. This stunning image is brought to you by Science Photo Library - an invaluable resource for those passionate about earth science and various scientific disciplines. Let it transport you into the realm where art meets science and marvel at one of nature's most breathtaking wonders –the aurora borealis or northern lights display.
