Aurora is sometimes referred to as ‘polar light’. It is predominantly seen in the regions of high altitudes like the Arctic and Antarctic. An aurora is caused by the streams of electrified particles (which are emitted by the sun) trapped in the magnetic field of the earth.

 It is produced when this magnetosphere is disturbed by the solar wind carrying the charged particles. Auroras are seen in latitudes of around 70 degrees. They generally occur in a band known as ‘auroral zone’. The auroral zone is 3 to 6 degrees wide in latitude. It lies between 10 and 20 degrees from the geomagnetic poles. 

This is visible quite clearly during the night. Auroras can sometimes be seen at latitudes below the actual auroral zone. Auroras can appear in various forms like streamers, patches, arcs, scattered light, diffused light etc. The brightest and the most distinctive of all forms of auroras are the ones which are curtain-like in the shape of an arc, extending in the east-west direction. This natural light effect is known as ‘aurora borealis’ in northern altitudes.
