This is where the polar day and night time Aurora comes from
posted June 27 2011 19:22.45 by Giorgos Lazaridis

I have upload blog entries with fantastic timelapse videos showing the polar Aurora effect. But i haven't upload any yet showing how this Aurora effect is generated. I suppose that more or less, everyone knows where it comes from. This video uploaded by space.com has an awesome animation to explain the origin of this wonderful phenomenon.

Plasma from solar flares or coronal mass ejections travel along solar wind to ultimately produce aurora's in Earth's polar regions. This visually stunning explanatory video takes you on a journey from sun's interior to the Earth's upper atmosphere.
