Are Auroras cause by light pollution?

No. Auroras are caused by streams of charged particles from the Sun, fired at the Earth by a coronal mass ejection; a massive solar flare. The charged particles interact with the Earth's magnetic field in the upper atmosphere and cause a glow. God's Own Neon Signs in the sky, you might think of it. Auroras are typically seen only at fairly high latitudes in the winter (because at high latitudes in the summer, the sky is too bright for auroras to be visible). However, a really big CME can cause auroras down to mid-latitudes, and in one extreme case, lit up the skies of Miami, Florida!
