Northern Lights In Canada Are Stunning From Province To Territory

Look at them dance!

Damn Canada, you look beautiful lit up.

If you've been lucky enough to catch Canada's gorgeous northern lights, which can range from purple to green to pink, you know how stunning they are in real life.

These "dancing lights" are caused by collisions between particles in the Earth's atmosphere and ones in the sun, the Northern Lights Centre notes.

"Variations in colour are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common auroral colour, a pale yellowish-green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth," the centre adds.

And while they are more common in northern territories like Yukon and Nunavut, and northern parts of provinces like Quebec and Manitoba, as you will notice in the images below, they can be visible in many Canadian cities.

And if you just need something soothing and meditative, check out the video above with a full time lapse of the northern lights in Churchill, Man.
