Aurora Borealis







It would be nice to see these beauties in the sky with your own eyes. It amazes and overwhelms me to grasp God's beauty laid up like these along with the stars at night. It's simply breath taking and wonderful.

Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights is a natural light display in the sky particularly in high latitude regions caused by collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmospehere. They illuminate the northern horizon as a greenesh glow or a faint red as if the Sun were rising from an unusal direction. (Source: Wikipedia) It can be found in northern regions of countries such as Alaska, Canada, Finland, and Norway and are more spectacular near the earth's north magnetic poles.

I've added this to my bucket list actually. I don't know how I'll ever get to see these amazing lights but maybe one day there'll be a miracle for me and I'll get there... :)
