This video with animations explains how particles originating from deep inside the core of the sun create northern lights, also called aurora borealis, on our planet.

It was produced by forskning.no in collaboration with the Department of Physics at the University of Oslo.

As such it is one of the clearest examples of how the northern lights are created that I have seen – thumbs up to the folks at the UoO!
