The northern lights, also known as aurora borealis, occurs when highly charged electrons from solar wind interact with elements in the earth’s atmosphere. As the electrons enter the upper atmosphere, they encounter atoms of oxygen and nitrogen at altitudes from 20 to 200 miles above the earth’s surface.Miles said: “The explosions of a corona overhead are so massive that it makes you feel like the smallest thing in the universe.” (By Miles Morgan)

Amateur photographer Miles Morgan travelled to pine forests near Kiruna, Sweden, to capture shots of the northern lights. He said: “The first time I saw the lights I was completely gobsmacked. It was one of the most thrilling and amazing moments I’ve ever had, and it will stay with me forever.

The colour of the aurora depends on which atom is struck, and the altitude of the meeting. Green and reds are found at higher altitudes – while blue, purple and violets are lower.
