Tackle It Tuesday Aurora Borealis

Dear Haijin,

Welcome to another Tackle It Tuesday This week's theme is Aurora Borealis or the Northernlight. I think this one is a lovely one to write haiku about. As you could have read here Aurora Borealis (Northern hemisphere) an Aurora Australis (Southern hemisphere) are quite remarkable phenomena through the magnetic field of our wonderful planet Mother Earth. It's really a wonderful sight when this phenomena occur as you can see on the picture below.

Look at those nice colors and shapes. This one is made in 2010 somewhere in Alaska. (The site to which the link beneath the picture goes is (unfortunately) in Dutch, but you can find some more pictures there of the Northernlight.
It's a treat of Mother Earth ... and I love it. I myself saw this phenomena once in my country (The Netherlands). On the next picture you can see Aurora Borealis occurring above the country of province Groningen in The Netherlands.

It's for sure a great sight.

These lights have always intrigued me....They seem so magical and mystical, and your haiku conveys this 'treat' so very well....and thanx for the education about the northern lights...
