The aurora borealis are formed when the solar winds from the sun bring charged electrons to interact with our atmosphere. These solar winds follow the earth’s magnetic force lines. The electrical and magnetic forces are constantly moving about, which causes the “dance” of the Northern Lights. The colors can develop into formations such as clouds, arcs, and streamers.
An Alaskan cruise offers some of the best views of the aurora borealis; you can see the brilliant color combinations reflect off the water from an unobstructed vantage point.
