What are the Auroras caused by?
Caused by the collision of charged particles directed by the magnetic field of earth. Mostly common in polar regions auroras are good astronomical sight at night.
Auroras are created at both the North and South magnetic poles. In the north it is called the Aurora Borealis and in the south it's called the Aurora Australis. This is caused by the solar wind interacting with the earth's magnetic field and our atmosphere. in cases of strong solar storms, the Auroras can be seen much farther from the poles.
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…
