Polar Aurora Borealis by Amédée Guillemin

ABOUT THIS COLLECTION  

Named for the Roman goddess of dawn, the aurora is a mysterious and unpredictable display of light in the night sky, commonly seen at high northern and southern latitudes. While usually a milky greenish color, auroras can also show red, blue, violet, pink, and white. These colors appear in a variety of changing shapes and no two displays are quite the same. Scientific explanation of the aurora eluded scientists until the early 20th century. The Sun’s energy is carried toward the Earth in the solar wind, spewing a stream of electrically charged particles (mostly protons and electrons) in all directions. As these particles enter the Earth’s upper atmosphere, they collide with nitrogen and oxygen atoms, which produces the beautiful auroral displays.
