An aurora is a natural light display in the sky, especially in the high latitude regions, caused by the collision of solar wind and magnetospheric charged particles with the high altitude atmosphere.

The aurora borealis has never been more accessible. In delightful news we just discovered, a continuous feed of the magical light show, also referred to as the northern lights, is available to watch online anytime thanks to the Explore organization, which has a network of live nature cameras. Though the phenomenon takes place in various spots throughout the northern hemisphere, this particular camera captures the view from Churchill, a small town in Manitoba, Canada.

If whatever is happening on the live stream isn't particularly interesting when you happen upon it, feel free to go back in the video to find a more lively moment. Now is a good time to do so, too, because late Winter and early Spring are considered the best times to view the aurora borealis. Projectors are also encouraged for peak cozy at-home viewings.
