Courtesy of Brain Pickings, here's a 4:49 video that clearly explains how auroras (both borealis and australis) occur. I knew vaguely what was happening, but this is a clear and concise animation of the forces involved.
I really hope to see this phenomenon one day.
Cool video. The only time I saw the real thing in all its vividness was on my one Concorde flight from the UK to New York. Just stunning. Totally gawkworthy.

You and me both... perhaps a bucket list endeavor?
