Northern Lights or also known as Aurora Borealis named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas, by Pierre Gassendi in 1621.

The origin of this mysterious and majestic natural phenomena have long sought the best minds of humanity. But only in the mid-twentieth century, it became clear that the auroras are formed by charged particles in space, "bombarding" the upper atmosphere of Earth. At high latitudes during the long night, there are an unusually beautiful aurora. An amazing play of colors accompanied by a fantastic phenomenon: the greenish-yellow color becomes purple, dark red.
