You must have read about the beautiful natural phenomenon called aurora lights. You might have seen the pictures also but the latest post from International Space Station (ISS) is going viral.
But first, let us know what are aurora australis?
Aurora australis is also known as the southern lights and southern polar lights. You also call it the southern hemisphere counterpart to the aurora borealis.
In the sky, it takes the shape of a curtain of light, or a sheet, or a diffuse glow. These are most often green in colour, sometimes red too.
NASA in a blogpost said, “Auroras happen when ions in the solar wind collide with atoms of oxygen and nitrogen in the upper atmosphere.”
The space agency keeps sharing breathtaking views and facts about the space and universe with netizens around the world.
