Nature’s most beautiful light show makes everyone surprised
Capture the Atlas, a travel photography site, has chosen 25 of the year’s greatest photographs of the vivid display of light that fills the skies of the polar areas near the North Pole and South Pole. The aurora borealis is the name given to these natural polar lights.
The phenomena is created by the solar wind colliding with the Earth’s magnetic field. Energy is released when electrons and protons from these solar winds collide with particles in the planet’s atmosphere. The aurora is caused by this energy.
Take a peek at some of the spectacular aurora photographs captured by the “Northern Lights Photographer” competition photographers.
