Jan Malecki's goal
47) See the northern lights
Imagine seeing a dark night sky illuminated with shimmering
streaks of blue, red and green.
The 'Aurora Borealis', more
commonly known as the northern lights, is a natural
phenomenon created when charged particles from the sun
collide with particles above the polar regions of the Earth.
This collision emits visible light, varying in intensity depending
on solar activity.
Northern lights are usually seen in an oval shaped zone
around the North Pole. The lights have on rare occasions
been seen from Northern Scotland, but for a greater chance
of seeing this spectacular sight without going too far afield,
head for Northern Norway.
