How the Aurora Borealis Forms

The Northern Lights are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere. Variations in colour are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common auroral color, a pale yellowish-green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth. Rare, all-red auroras are produced by high-altitude oxygen, at heights of up to 200 miles. Nitrogen produces blue or purplish-red aurora.

Some People says that Norway is the place which skies has the ability to form these light by some chemical combination of molecules and their reaction. But they can be seen outside of Norway more clearly. They were first seen 1880, but scientist found the reason of formation in 1950.
