Caption   A spectacular aurora appears above the Brooks Range of northern Alaska on the evening of March 21, 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.
