    The Aurora Borealis – commonly referred to as the Northern Lights – fired up once again overnight. This phenomenon is a result of electrons colliding with the Earth’s atmosphere. The electrons become energized and follow the Earth’s magnetic field. As these electrons mix with oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere, the atoms and molecules enhance to a higher energy state. Once a critical buildup is reached, the particles release their energy in the form of light. According to NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration) this light that forms 80 to 500 km…
