An aurora is a natural light display in the sky, especially in the high latitude  regions, caused by the collision of solar wind and magnetospheric charged particles with the high altitude atmosphere. Most auroras occur in a band known as the auroral zone, which is typically 3° to 6° wide in latitude and observed at 10° to 20° from the geomagnetic poles at all local times, but often most vividly around the spring and autumn equinoxes. The charged particles and solar wind are directed into the atmosphere by the Earth's magnetosphere.   Source
