Aurora Boreal, Aurora Polar, Luzes do Norte ou do Sul ou apenas Aurora são a mesma coisa... São maneiras diferentes de chamar um fenômeno natural de luzes que aparece no céu, geralmente a noite, particularmente nas Regiões Polares. A Aurora Boreal ocorre normalmente de Setembro a Outubro e de Março a Abril. As luzes do norte já tiveram diversos nomes no decorrer dos tempos, mas um dos que achei mais interessante foi "A Dança dos Espíritos".

Aqui nós vamos mostrar algumas fotografias incríveis que achei desse fenômeno no Flickr. A maioria dessas imagens não tem retoques no photoshop, são cenas reais, e aquelas que tiveram retoques no photoshop foi apenas para enfatizar o efeito e não para criá-lo. Pelo menos isso é o que está escrito nos comentários dos usuários que publicaram as imagens no Flickr. :) Se quiser saber mais sobre Aurora Boreal visite Wikipedia (em inglês), Wikipedia (mais resumido, em português).
