the Northern Lights, also known as Aurora borealis, are a natural light display that occur in high-latitude regions, such as the Arctic and Antarctic. These displays are caused by the interaction of charged particles from the sun with the Earth's magnetic field.

When a particularly strong solar storm occurs and sends a large number of charged particles towards Earth, it can create an intense display of Northern Lights that are visible even in areas that don't normally see them.
