Northern Lights Art

We learned about the science behind the beautiful Northern Lights.  The colors that you see are actually tiny packets of light called photons.  They are created when electrons from the sun break through our magnetosphere, enter our atmosphere, and mix with oxygen and nitrogen.  Pretty cool huh?  Have you ever seen the Northern Lights?
