Stunning Auroras Pictures
The aurora can be seen best at this time, which is called magnetic midnight. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the auroraborealis (or the northern lights), named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas, by Galileo in 1619.
Here are some of those exceptionally beautiful auroras that you can enjoy from the warmth of your chair instead of the snowy wilds.
