Check out this great collection of Northern light pictures, taking by ordinary people living in areas where the sun storms have resulted in the most beautiful Northern light spectacle this winter. This past week, there were two solar storms, back to back, resulting in the biggest solar flare in the past 6 years. Solar storms produce a massive amount of charged particles that the Earth's magnetic field deflects towards the poles. The interaction of these charged particles with the atmosphere results in these colorful auroras. Go to the link to see many beautiful photographs!

I see an angel flapping its wings in that aurora, does it mean angels exist? :-)

I've watched them all with fascination; I believe no form of art can come close to this..

(I especially favoured the ones where there were no signs of human inhabitations even if these solar flares were just amazing)

WOW !!!
