A rare solar storm may bring the Northern Lights south to the US

Get ready guys: The Northern Lights might be taking a trip south this weekend.

what is the reason behind how our earth’s atmosphere affects by came out of Auroras?

Auroras generally occur when charged particles from the sun form a fast-moving cloud. When these particles crash into Earth’s atmosphere, they release energy in the form of light, which most commonly appears as a shimmering green, though it may also blend into hues of blue and red-purple depending on the altitude and the types of gases with which the particles collide. Solar flares, like the one that occurred on March 20,2019 may supercharge the aurora’s glow so that its visibility extends farther than usual.
