An aurora (plural: auroras), sometimes referred to as polar lights,
northern lights (aurora borealis) or southern lights (aurora australis), is a natural
light display in the Earth's sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude regions
(around the Arctic and Antarctic). Auroras are produced when the
magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of
charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the
form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere
(thermosphere/exosphere) due to Earth's magnetic field, where their energy is
lost. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits
light of varying color and complexity. The form of the aurora, occurring within
bands around both polar regions, is also dependent on the amount of
acceleration imparted to the precipitating particles. Precipitating protons
generally produce optical emissions as incident hydrogen atoms after gaining
electrons from the atmosphere. Proton auroras are usually observed at lower

The basic cause involves the interaction of the solar windwith the Earth's
magnetosphere. The varying intensity of the solar wind produces effects of
different magnitudes, but includes one or more of the following physical
1. A quiescent solar wind flowing past the Earth's magnetosphere steadily
interacts with it and can both inject solar wind particles directly onto the
geomagnetic field lines that are 'open', as opposed to being 'closed' in the
opposite hemisphere, and provide diffusion through the bow shock.
2. Geomagnetic disturbance from an enhanced solar wind causes distortions of
the magnetotail ("magnetic substorms"). These 'substorms' tend to occur
after prolonged spells (hours) during which the interplanetary magnetic field
has had an appreciable southward component. This leads to a higher rate of
interconnection between its field lines and those of Earth
3. Acceleration of auroral charged particles invariably accompanies a
magnetospheric disturbance that causes an aurora. This mechanism, which
is believed to predominantly arise from strong electric fields along the
magnetic field or wave-particle interactions, raises the velocity of a particle
in the direction of the guiding magnetic field

Auroras frequently appear either as a diffuse glow or as "curtains" that extend

approximately in the east–west direction. At some times, they form "quiet arcs";
at others they evolve and change constantly. These are called "active aurora".
1. Red : At the highest altitudes, excited atomic oxygen emits at 630.0 nm
(red); low concentration of atoms and lower sensitivity of eyes at this
wavelength make this color visible only under more intense solar activity.
Scarlet, crimson, and carmine are the most often-seen hues of red for the
2. Blue : At yet lower altitudes, atomic oxygen is uncommon, and molecular
nitrogen and ionized molecular nitrogen takes over in producing visible
light emission; radiating at a large number of wavelengths in both red and
blue parts of the spectrum, with 428 nm (blue) being dominant.
3. Green : At lower altitudes the more frequent collisions suppress the 630.0
nm (red) mode: rather the 557.7 nm emission (green) dominates. Fairly high
concentration of atomic oxygen and higher eye sensitivity in green make
green auroras the most common.

In the traditions of Aboriginal Australians, the Aurora Australis is

commonly associated with fire. For example, the Gunditjmara people of western
Victoria called auroras puae buae ('ashes'), while the Gunai people of eastern
Victoria perceived auroras as bushfires in the spirit world. The Dieri people of
South Australia say that an auroral display is kootchee, an evil spirit creating a
large fire. Similarly, the Ngarrindjeri people of South Australia refer to auroras
seen over Kangaroo Island as the campfires of spirits in the 'Land of the Dead'.
Aboriginal people in southwest Queensland believe the auroras to be the fires of
the Oola Pikka, ghostly spirits who spoke to the people through auroras. Sacred
law forbade anyone except male elders from watching or interpreting the
messages of ancestors they believed were transmitted through an aurora.

Auroras take many forms, including luminous curtains, arcs, and

patches. The uniform arc is the most stable form of aurora, sometimes persisting
for hours without noticeable variation. However, in a great display, other forms
appear, commonly undergoing dramatic variation. The lower edges of the arcs
and folds are usually much more sharply defined than the upper parts. Greenish
rays may cover most of the sky poleward of the magnetic zenith, ending in an
arc that is usually folded and sometimes edged with a lower red border that may
ripple like drapery.

Both the Northern Lights and Southern Lights are types of Auroras. The
only difference between the Northern Lights and Southern Lights is that the
Northern Lights occur at the North Pole, while the Southern Lights occur at the
South Pole. The name Aurora is the name of the Roman goddess of dawn. As
the lights look like approaching dawn, they were named after the goddess of
dawn. The name Borealis is the Greek name for the north wind, hence denoting
that it occurs in the north, while the name Australis is the Latin word meaning
‘of the South’ or ‘Southern’.
Paragraph 1

Main Idea :
It is to describe the general information of Aurora Phenomenon

Translation :
Aurora (jamak: aurora), kadang-kadang disebut sebagai lampu polar, lampu
utara (aurora borealis) atau lampu selatan (aurora australis), adalah tampilan
cahaya alami di langit bumi, yang sebagian besar terlihat di daerah lintang
tinggi (sekitar Arktik dan Antartika). Auroras diproduksi saat magnetosfer
cukup terganggu oleh angin matahari sehingga lintasan partikel bermuatan baik
di angin matahari maupun plasma magnetosfer, terutama dalam bentuk elektron
dan proton, mengendapnya ke atmosfer bagian atas (termosfer / eksosfer) akibat
medan magnet, dimana energi mereka hilang. Ionisasi yang dihasilkan dan
eksitasi konstituen atmosfer memancarkan cahaya dari berbagai warna dan
kompleksitas. Bentuk aurora, terjadi di dalam gerombolan di sekitar daerah
kutub, juga bergantung pada jumlah percepatan yang diberikan pada partikel
yang mengendap. Mengendapkan proton umumnya menghasilkan emisi optik
sebagai atom hidrogen yang terjadi setelah mendapatkan elektron dari atmosfer.
Proton aurora biasanya diamati pada garis lintang rendah.

Paragraph 2

Main Idea :
It is about the causes of aurora phenomenon

Translation :
Penyebab dasarnya melibatkan interaksi angin matahari dengan magnetosfer
bumi. Intensitas angin matahari yang bervariasi menghasilkan efek dengan
besaran yang berbeda, namun mencakup satu atau lebih dari skenario fisik

1. Sebuah angin matahari yang tidak bergerak mengalir melewati magnetosfer

Bumi terus berinteraksi dengannya dan dapat memasukkan partikel angin
matahari secara langsung ke jalur bidang geomagnetik yang 'terbuka', sebagai
lawan dari 'tertutup' di belahan bumi yang berlawanan, dan memberikan difusi
melalui kejutan busur.

2. Gangguan geomagnetik dari angin matahari yang disempurnakan

menyebabkan distorsi magnetotail ("badai magnetik"). 'Badai' ini cenderung
terjadi setelah waktu berkepanjangan (jam) selama medan magnet antarplanet
memiliki komponen selatan yang cukup besar. Hal ini menyebabkan tingkat
interkoneksi yang lebih tinggi antara garis medan dan bidang Bumi.

3. Akselerasi partikel bermuatan aurora selalu menyertai gangguan magnetosfer

yang menyebabkan aurora. Mekanisme ini, yang diyakini sebagian besar timbul
dari medan listrik yang kuat sepanjang medan magnet atau interaksi partikel
gelombang, meningkatkan kecepatan partikel ke arah medan magnet pemandu.

Auroras sering muncul baik sebagai cahaya yang menyebar atau sebagai "tirai"
yang membentang kira-kira di arah timur-barat. Pada beberapa waktu, mereka
membentuk "busur yang tenang"; pada waktu lain mereka berkembang dan
berubah terus-menerus. Ini disebut "aurora aktif".

1. Merah: Pada ketinggian tertinggi, oksigen atom yang menyala memancar

pada 630,0 nm (merah); konsentrasi atom yang rendah dan sensitivitas mata
yang lebih rendah pada panjang gelombang ini membuat warna ini hanya
terlihat di bawah aktivitas matahari yang lebih intens. Scarlet, crimson, dan
carmine adalah warna merah yang paling sering terlihat untuk aurora.
2. Biru: Pada ketinggian yang lebih rendah, oksigen atom jarang ditemukan, dan
nitrogen molekul dan nitrogen molekul terionisasi mengambil alih dalam

panjang gelombang di bagian spektrum merah dan biru, dengan 428 nm (biru)
3. Hijau: Pada ketinggian yang lebih rendah tubrukan yang lebih sering

api unggun roh di 'Tanah Orang Mati'. Orang-orang Aborigin di Queensland
barat daya percaya bahwa aurora adalah api Oola Pikka, roh-roh hantu yang

mengalami variasi dramatis. Tepi bawah lengkungan dan lipatan biasanya jauh
