"Northern Lights" Finland Favorite Tip by Leipzig
Finland General: 206 reviews and 163 photos
Favorite thing: Norhtern lights, or Aurora Borealis as the scientific name, is a light effect caused by solar particles being caught by the magnetic field of the Earth. Striking the upper atmosphere their energy cause a visible light. Depending on its lenghtwave the light apperas is different color. this phenomenon can only be seen in the polar regions because of the minimum of the magnetic field.
In Finland it was most of time overcast or mostly cloudy and I couldn't see the Northern Light. But in Germany I have seen it several times.
hope you could understand - not easy to explain in a foreign language
