Storyboard Text

  • 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
