The Northern and Southern Lights (Aurora Borealis or Aurora Australis) - Reeko's Mad Scientist Lab
The northern and southern lights are caused by energetic charged particles from the sun colliding with gas particles in the sky. These charged particles arrive from the sun via solar winds and are directed into the air by the Earth’s magnetic field. The lights can form as low as 50 miles above the earth to has high as 400 miles from the earth’s surface.
