Enjoy a mysterious trip, on a dark night, any time from the onset of autumn darkness until the light nights of spring, you can witness one of the nature's most spectacular displays; the phenomenon which is called the Northen Lights. Also known as the Aurora Borealis, this is a spectacular natural phenomenon, often seen dancing around in fantastic colors across the Arctic sky. The Northern lights originate from the sun, where large explosions and electronic storms throw flares and solar particles deep into space. These clouds of solar particles are caught by the Earth's magnetic field on the south and north poles. The solar particles collide with the atmospheric gases and create this wonderful light effect, known as the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights.
