Why Does the Aurora Borealis Happen?
The Aurora Borealis occurs when charged particles from outer space collide with Earth’s atmosphere, specifically with the upper atmosphere which contains gases such as nitrogen and oxygen.
These collisions cause the particles to emit a beautiful glow when they interact with the Earth’s magnetic field.

The appearance and color of the light produced by the Aurora Borealis has a variety of colors, ranging from green, red, purple, blue, and sometimes even yellow or orange.
