Update: Chance to see Northern Lights tonight
The bright dancing lights of the aurora are collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun entering the earth’s atmosphere.
Auroral displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink are the most common.
The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow.
‘Aurora borealis’, the lights of the northern hemisphere, means ‘dawn of the north’.
