This storyboard was created with
Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis
The sun shakes off tons of protons and electrons that are moving too fast so aren't held by the sun's gravity
The free protons and electrons move together as a plasma cloud known as the Solar Wind and take a very roundabout route to Earth
The Magnetosphere protects the earth from this but with huge solar flares the electrons and protons finally get by it but are attracted to the magnetic poles
Here the protons and electrons "high-five" with neutral oxygen and nitrogen atoms
This reaction emits light called photons which give the colours in the auroras
