Seeing the Aurora Borealis is an amazing sight

The Aurora Borealis is an incredible light show and an experience to put on your bucket list. 

The sky shimmers and the lights above are quite magical. It's almost like something out of a movie. Some say it's a spiritual experience.

However, there's a scientific explanation for the phenomenon. The lights are caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun entering the earth's atmosphere and colliding with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. The lights are seen around the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. 

I recently had the oportunity to visit the Yukon Territories of Canada, where the experience I had was quite memorable. 

Read more about my experience seeing the Aurora Borealis in the Yukon in spring and let me know if this is something you'd put on your bucket list.
