Although few of us live close enough to Earth’s poles to regularly observe auroras, we all have access to YouTube.
Semenov recently posted the brief video of the green aurora to his YouTube channel.
In the video Semenov shows about a minute of green northern lights ribboning their way through a clear, starry sky.
As for the science, auroras are a result of solar winds interacting with gases in Earth’s atmosphere.
Anybody who’s now in the mood for more ephemeral displays of cosmic beauty, auroras occur on other planets too.
