Northern Lights are a dazzling show


It would be worthwhile to glance up if you have a clear sky at home for the next few evenings since the UK has seen an increase in the likelihood.

The reason for this is not just that the nights are becoming longer now that the fall equinox has passed.

Sun is nearing the conclusion of its 11-year cycle, which is expected to occur in late 2024 or early 2025.

This indicates a rise in the quantity of sunspots, which are large magnetic pressure fields on the Sun's surface.

These then cause a coronal mass ejection, or CME, to explode, which is the Sun expelling plasma.

Furthermore, charged particles are sent toward our atmosphere by solar winds if that is directed at Earth.

The charged particles combine with nitrogen and oxygen in our atmosphere to produce the well-known aurora colors.

Scotland and other regions of England, notably North Yorkshire and Herefordshire in the south, have already reported seeing auroras.
