Aurora is usually associated with Arctic region, but it is a discharging phenomenon that takes place at the polar region at over 100km above the ground. Auroras are called the “northern lights” in North America and Scandinavia, and “southern lights” or “Aurora Australis” in the southern hemisphere.
