This enthusiasm is also clearly noticeable among Twitter users. They have already managed to capture this natural phenomenon and are sharing these images online:
The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon that occurs when the Sun sends charged particles towards Earth at high speeds. These particles encircle the Earth’s magnetic field and traverse the atmosphere through the polar regions. They usually move at altitudes between 100 and 300 kilometers.
When these particles enter the atmosphere, they come into contact with various gases in the air. This creates colorful light phenomena. The colors of the Northern Lights vary depending on which gases the charged particles encounter at different altitudes.
The Northern Lights could also be seen on Sunday evening in several other European countries, including Switzerland, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Poland and Ukraine. Various media reported this based on messages on social media.
