AURORA BOREALIS : The aurora is a glow that appears in the night sky, usually in polar areas. They have very diverse shapes, structures, and colors that also change rapidly with time. During a night, the aurora can begin as a very elongated isolated arc that extends into the horizon. Around midnight the arc may begin to increase in brightness. Ripples or ripples begin to form along the arc and also vertical structures that look like very long, thin beams of light. The entire sky can be filled with bands and rays of light that move rapidly from horizon to horizon. The activity can last from a few minutes to hours. As dawn approaches the whole process seems to calm down and only small areas of the sky appear bright until morning comes.
