The Northern lights wallpapers

The Northern lights are one of the wonders of nature. It’s so beautiful that it’s impossible to describe in words. Breathtaking! To understand how it actually looks like and what feelings one is seethed with when looking at it, there isn’t another way out but to see it with your own eyes.

The Polar lights can be seen above magnetic poles in all the Earth’s hemispheres except for the eastern one. Come to the north in winter to watch the lights. At that time, the sky is the clearest and darkest.

However, not everyone can afford such a far-away trip. Fortunately, there’s an alternative. While you save money for the journey, install the Northern lights wallpapers on your device.

Ancient peoples considered the lights to be of divine origin. For instance, the Norse believed the gods built a fire bridge to the skies in such a way; the Inuit were sure the lights were their ancestors’ spirits. That’s all wrong. Aurora (i.e., the Northern lights) is the result of percussion of the Earth and Sun’s particles that are of different nature. Depending on the type of the particles hit (how high they are in the atmosphere), aurora comes in different colours and shades: red, blue, green, yellow, violet, but pink and yellowish-green are the most common.

Imagine glowing scattered clouds, patches, arcs, or streamers of different colours to light up the whole night winter sky. Oh, wait. You don’t have to imagine this. The Northern lights wallpapers in HD will demonstrate you the phenomenon in the best way.
