Hi ava here today I will tell you about auroras
Aurora is a latin word for sunrise. It is also the name of the Roman Goddess of Dawn.
Aurora’s are associated with the solar winds that go from the sun to earth because they carry plasma particles which are attracted to the earths magnetic pole fields (which is why we see Aurora’s in the North and South pole). The oxygen atoms in the earths atmosphere mix with the plasma particles and release an energy which is what we see on Earth as Aurora’s.
Aurora’s can also be seen on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Mars.
They come in different colours; but usually green but sometimes red or blue.
Different names for Aurora’s in the Southern hemisphere are; Aurora Australis, The Southern Lights or Polar Lights. The names associated with the Northern Hemisphere Aurora’s include; Aurora Borealis or The Northern Lights.
some places you can see auroras include; Greenland, Biberia, Alasra, Antarctica,Tasmania, the Arctic and other places.
