Aurora Borealis a.k.a Northern Lights... [Photos]

Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)...

Auroras, sometimes called the northern and southern (polar) lights or aurorae, are natural light displays in the sky, usually observed at night, particularly in the polar regions. They typically occur in the ionosphere. They are also referred to as polar auroras. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis, named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas.

THIS IS A FIRE RAINBOW - THE RAREST OF ALL NATURALLY
OCCURRING ATMOSPHERIC PHENOMENA.

THE PICTURE WAS CAPTURED THIS WEEK. THE
EVENT LASTED ABOUT 1 HOUR.

CLOUDS HAVE TO BE CIRRUS, AT LEAST 20K FEET
IN THE AIR, WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF ICE
CRYSTALS AND THE SUN HAS TO HIT THE CLOUDS
AT PRECISELY 58 DEGREES.
