Trivia Quiz ~Pay close attention there will be a quiz at the end~
A condensed explanation of the "Auroras" or "Aurora Borealis" seen in the arctic regions, and "Aurora Australis"seen in the Antarctic regions, They have been described as natures fireworks, or paintings in the sky. They originate from solar flares. Huge quantities of solar particles are thrown from the sun and into deep space. These "plasma" clouds travel at speeds that vary from 300 to 1,200 kilometers per second. When they come near the earth they are drawn to the earths geomagnetic poles, The North pole and the South pole. However when they reach the earths atmosphere, which acts as an effective protective shield from these deadly particles that would make the earth uninhabitable, they collide with the atmospheric gasses primarily oxygen and nytrogen and then become a photon or a light particle. When you have so many such collisions you have an "aurora".
"Awesome stuff" if you ask me.
