Fascinating picture of Aurora Borealis lighting up the dark skies on a snowy winters day. The aurora is somewhat of a phenomenon produced by x-rays from the sun colliding with the magnetic fields of earth, thus emitting light when earths athmosphere gets amplicated with energy. It can mostly be seen in the northern countries like sweden and canada, but¬†sometimes it’s bright enough to be seen by the rest of the world also. Aurora borealis is actually¬†the northern lights and Aurora australis is the same phenomenon produced around the south pole instead.
