Aurora borealis

Aurora borealis. This coloured atmospheric light display (the northern lights) is visible in the night sky at high latitudes. It occurs when charged and energetic particles from the Sun (the solar wind) are drawn by Earths magnetic field to the polar regions. Hundreds of kilometres up, they collide with gas molecules and atoms, causing them to emit light. Photographed in Canada

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the mesmerizing beauty of the Aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights. The vibrant and ethereal colors of this atmospheric light display illuminate the night sky at high latitudes, creating a breathtaking spectacle for those lucky enough to witness it. The phenomenon occurs when charged and energetic particles from the Sun, known as the solar wind, are drawn towards Earth's magnetic field and converge upon the polar regions. At altitudes hundreds of kilometers above us, these particles collide with gas molecules and atoms in our atmosphere, causing them to emit radiant light. Photographed in Canada against a backdrop of nature's splendor – towering trees and serene woodlands – this image captures both the grandeur of Earth's natural wonders and its harmonious interaction with celestial forces. The glowing hues blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscape, creating an otherworldly ambiance that is truly awe-inspiring. The aurora borealis serves as a reminder of how interconnected our planet is with cosmic events. It symbolizes not only scientific phenomena but also evokes a sense of wonderment about our place in the universe. This stunning photograph by Science Photo Library encapsulates all these elements beautifully while inviting viewers to appreciate nature's extraordinary displays.
