The Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, are named after the Roman goddess of dawn (Aurora) and the Greek name for the north wind (Boreas) by Pierre Gassendi in 1621.   They normally appear close to the magnetic North Pole, and are created when energy particles from the sun collide with the Earth's magnetic field.  The kind of atom determines the color of the northern light.
