The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon that occur when charged particles from the sun strike atoms in our atmosphere and cause them to light up. Over the years they have been believed to represent a number of different things such as the spirits of the dead passing on to the next life or an indication of upcoming war. Today we know them to represent the subtle ways in which the nature of our planet can be utterly breathtaking and with our unique longitude of being 66 degrees north of the equator means we get plenty of Northern Lights activity during the winter months.
