What is northern lights caused by?
solar winds in space
Gas mollecules in the ionsphere are electrically charged by the sun's energy causing bright lights to occur (the Northern Lights).
The northern lights or, Aurora Borealis Is a display of majestic lights caused by solar wind passing by the earth. The aurora consist of ionized gas.
It is the northern lights. The northern lights are caused by charged particles that sometimes are sucked into the Earth on either ends of the poles. They also have other names but I can't remember. Thanks!!
The Aurora Borealis (Northern lights) and the Aurora Australis (Southern lights) both "shine" all year round. They are caused by energized particles from the sun striking the Earth's Magnetosphere.
The Northern Lights are not affected by the ozone layer. Auroras are caused by charged solar particles colliding with atoms of oxygen and nitrogen in the ionosphere.
the northern lights are caused by magnetic energy being shot out of the passing through the earths atmosphere it also happen in the southern hemisphere because the atmosphere is weaker in these parts
The auras you see in the sky is caused by a huge amount of solar winds colliding with our megnetosphere is what creates the beautiful lights that appear.
Properly, it's called the Aurora Borealis. Familiarly, it's called the "Northern Lights".
The Northern and Southern lights, respectively.
As the northern lights are a commonly occurring phenomena, it's likely the very first Inuit people were the discoverers of the Northern Lights. This could have been anywhere around the 8th-11th century. It got a lot of attention in the late 18th century when Benjamin Franklin hypothesised as to what caused them
The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.
Northern lights, or auroras, are caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere. The charged particles originate in the magnetosphere and solar wind and are directed by the Earth's magnetic field into the atmosphere.
The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis is caused by collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enters the earth's atmosphere. The type of gas particles that are colliding result in the variations in color.
Aurora Borealis is caused by particles hitting earth's atmosphere thermosphere and they are stopped, so they give of their energy in the "Northern Lights" or Aurora Borealis.
The northern and southern lights are caused by cosmic rays playing with the Earths north and south poles magnetic field. Beautiful waving sheets of colors.
the northern lights are ,i am pretty sure,located in the northern hemisphere in Alaska
The northern lights are in the northern hemisphere hence nearer the north pole.
The Northern Lights Northern lights
No they're in the Arctic that is why they're the NORTHERN lights
They'd be the Southern Lights, not northern.
The Northern Lights Can Be Seen From:Scandinavia Greenland Northern Russia Northern Canada & The North Pole
the northen lights are located at the north and south pole The Northern Lights can be found near the polar regions up north like Northern Canada, Northern Europe, and Northern Asia.
Nelvana of the Northern Lights was created in 1941.
Toronto Northern Lights was created in 1998.
Northern Lights College was created in 1975.
Northern Lights was written by Philip Pullman.
Yes northern lights can be seen in Iceland
yes,the northern lights can be seen from Kentucky
Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and Aurora Australis (Southern Lights).
The Northern Lights occur in the northern hemisphere, in the ionosphere, the highest level of the atmosphere.
No. What you see there are the Southern Lights, which are caused in the same way, so in effect they are the same thing. Another Answer The confusion may be in the names. In the north, these lights are called Aurora Borealis, and in the South, Aurora Australis.
The Southern (or Northern) Lights are caused by particles ejected from the sun by solar flares, getting trapped in the ionosphere and radiating. They happen all the time, but the conditions have to be right for them to be visible.
the northern lights come out in the winter and the summer, but only at night.
Northern lights is one of the top Volleyball clubs in MN.
Yes, the Latin name for 'Northern Lights' is Aurora Borealis.
the northern lights don't and cant pollute the arctic
The Northern Lights occur in the ionosphere, the highest level of the atmosphere, so all the others layer usually do NOT contain the Northern Lights.
There are no set dates. They can happen at any time. So for any given year you cannot say what dates it will be possible to see the Northern Lights. They are caused by unusual activity on the Sun and that activity is completely unpredictable. When astronomers do see it, they can then predict that the Northern Lights will be seen in the coming days. So it is only just a few days before they… Read More
The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis. There's a song "The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen." See the link below for song and pictures.
Operation Northern Lights happened on 2006-03-22.
Northern Lights (or southern if in the southern hemisphere) Northern lights
You see the Northern lights when the Sun gives off Solar Wind.
The Northern lights have been around for...... a long time!
No. I lived in Alaska and the Northern lights were not always visable.
yes I saw the Northern Lights in Yuma Arizona in 2006
Yes there are. They are the same phenomenon as the Northern Lights. It happens at both the north pole and south pole. The Northern Lights can be seen in much of the northern hemisphere and the Southern Lights in much of the southern hemisphere.
Other than impressing them with their beauty and inspiring them to awe - the northern lights really don't have any effect on people. The solar radiation that causes the northern lights can interfere with radio transmissions so that is an effect related to, but not cause by, the northern lights.
The Northern Lights are kind of lights made by Earths magnetic field. They appear at the North pole and South pole.
The noun Northern Lights is plural, a word for more than one light. The Northern Lights (also called Aurora Borealis) is made up of a series of many lights. The noun Northern Lights is a proper noun, the name of a specific thing. A proper noun is always capitalized.
