Northern lights

Northern lights. The Northern Lights are created as electrically charged particles from the Solar wind are pulled in toward the magnetic poles by the Earth's magnetic field. As these particles collide with the atoms of gas in the ionosphere about 80km above the ground, they give the atoms energy and they become excited'. The atoms spontaneously release this energy in discrete amounts, resulting in particular colours of light being emitted. Photographed in the Swedish Arctic

Comet with aurora

Comet Hale-Bopp seen over trees silhouetted byan aurora borealis display. Hale-Bopp was one ofthe brightest comets of the 20th century, and wasseen for much of early 1997. A comet is a lump ofice and rock. Its tail is formed as its iceevaporates as it nears the Sun. The tail alwayspoints away from the Sun, and may stretch formillions of kilometres. The aurora borealis is anatmospheric phenomenon caused by the interactionsof charged particles from the Sun with the Earth'smagnetic field. The magnetic field channelsparticles to the poles, where they excite gasmolecules in the upper atmosphere, causing them toglow. Photographed from Finland in spring 1997
