The bright dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis are the result of collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun which enter the Earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.
In the past, some cultures have explained the presence of the Northern Lights as deceased relatives attempting to communicate with the living. Others have believed they are a way to conjure up ghosts and spirits. There are many different myths and stories and more romantic beliefs. The student’s task is to create their own explanation of this natural phenomena.
