8 Shots Of Auroras Borealis Above Russian Cities

Aurora Borealis is amazing in every way, once you see it in real it would leave you breathless. Just as in Scandinavian countries, northern Russian sky is also usually covered by Aurora Borealis during winter times, when this spectacular light show of shimmering lights shows us what art nature truly is. For those of you that don’t know, Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere), where their energy is lost. Lately thanks to rise of social media Russian websites have started to display these photos and ladies and gentelslavs, enjoy the skies above Russian northern cities:
