Aurora Borealis - Northern Lights (Manitoba, Canada)

This link is for night-owls, insomniacs, and people who are still awake deep in the night. Aurora borealis is not an animal, but a fantastic natural light show that can only be seen on a clear night. Northern lights are dependent on solar winds blowing particles from the sun to the earth and are especially active during solar flares. Be aware that they don't show up every night, but if you're lucky and watch on a night when the solar winds are strong, then it's magical!

BTW, did you know these lights can also be seen from the south pole? Southern lights are called "aurora australis."
