When solar flares increase solar wind from the corona what do they cause in earths 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
