Check out the Northern Lights.
Northern Alaska is where many Americans head for the chance to see the aurora borealis.
What is the aurora borealis?
The aurora is a luminous glow seen around the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. The light is caused by collisions between electrically charged particles streaming out from the sun in the solar wind that enter Earth’s atmosphere and collide with molecules and atoms of gas, primarily oxygen and nitrogen.
