Aurora is a shifting pattern of light emitted from atoms and molecules in the atmosphere after they have been ionized by collisions with charged particles from the sun. The radiation can be seen with the naked eye, most notably at the polar regions where the Earth’s magnetic field focusses most of the solar particles.
