About the Northern Lights
The Aurora Borealis (named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas)
Is there anything more remarkable on this planet of ours than Mother Nature? Here, at The Aurora Zone, we’re inclined to think not. From towering mountain peaks to thundering waterfalls, underwater wonders to geological marvels, we could spend a thousand lifetimes exploring this amazing world. However, of all the incredible places to visit and stunning sites to see on planet Earth, there is one natural phenomenon that always comes out top in the “bucket list” charts: the Aurora Borealis or, as they are more commonly known, the Northern Lights.
The Aurora is Mother Nature’s very own celestial lightshow, a lightshow that originates 93 million miles away on the surface of the Sun and travels across the frozen wastes of space to create a spectacle that has mesmerised humankind for millennia.
