Solar winds are the out-of-this-world event that cause auroras to appear on earth. Auroras can happen near both the north and the south poles.

Do solar flares from the sun cause auroras near earths poles?

Magnetic storms unleashed by solar flares can cause auroras, but all solar flares don't cause auroras.


Where on earth are you most likely to see auroras in the sky?

The aurora borealis and aurora australis occur in the thermosphere.


Why Auroras do not happened near equator?

The auroras that are experienced near the polar regions occur because of the strength of the earth's magnetic field. The magnetic field is not very strong at the equator.


Explain why auroras are seen mostly near the north pole and south pole?

An Aurora Australis or an Aurora Borealis occurs when streams of particles from the sun's solar winds hit the earth's atmosphere at an angle (as can only happen at the poles). These particles interact with the edges of the earth's magnetic field and when they collide with the gases in the ionosphere, the particles glow creating curtains of blue, green and magenta. An aurora is sometimes accompanied by a crackling sound. The Aurora Australis appears around Antarctica and the Aurora Borealis appears around the Arctic.


Why can t you see the borealis and australis here in the Philippines?

Auroras are usually confined to arctic (and antarctic) regions near the magnetic poles. The Philippines is a tropical nation. It would be extremely unusual for auroras to be visible in the Philippines.


Why are auroras more commonly seen in places such as Alaska and Australia than in places such as Florida and Mexico?

They are more commonly seen closer to the poles than the equator because magnetism near the poles.


Why depletion of ozone layer is more near poles of the earth?

Depletion of ozone layer is near the poles. It is actually at the poles. It is because of low weather.


Is the magnetic field of earth stronger near the middle of the earth or at the bottom of earth?

near both magnetic poles


When solar flares increase solar wind from the corona what do they cause in earth upper atmosphere?

It increases the number of particles reaching the Earth's upper atmosphere. Normally, Earth's atmosphere and magnetic field block these particles. However, near the North and South poles, the particles can enter Earth's atmosphere, where they create powerful electric currents that cause gas and molecules in the atmosphere to glow. The result is rippling sheets of light in the sky called auroras.1 word for it would be?the aurora borealis


What prevents particles from the sun from reaching the surface?

Charged particles from the Sun will not reach the surface of the Earth because they are mostly deflected around it by the Earth's magnetic field (the magnetosphere), but where the particles are deflected towards the surface near the Earth's magnetic poles, they interact with the gas high in the atmosphere to form the Auroras and do not penetrate through to the surface.
