Caption   A brilliant aurora appears above the mountains of the Brooks Range in northern Alaska on the morning of March 19, 2015. Aurora occur when fast-moving charged particles from the sun are directed by the Earth's magnetic field to the polar regions, where they strike molecules in the atmosphere and cause them to emit light.
