With its beautiful offerings all across the universe, it tends to amaze people leaving them wondering how lovely it is to experience the world at its natural best. The Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis is one such natural phenomenon that can leave all its witnesses truly spell bound.

It is actually a natural light display in the sky, visible in the high altitude arctic region. It is caused because of some natural collisions that occur between the energetic charged particles with atoms which are ejected from the sun in solar wind. Quite scientific this might sound, but he result is a stunning display of lights in the sky; something that is extraordinarily beautiful.
