A coronal mass ejection hit Earth's magnetic field on Oct. 8, 2012 sparking a dramatic display of Northern Lights which subsided 3 days later. The Aurora appears to be casting rays of green sunlight through the clouds. Hugo Løhre photographed the auroras over Lekangsund, Norway, on Oct. 10, 2012.

Auroras form when a "solar wind" of charged particles from the Sun enters Earth's magnetic field, accelerating electrically charged particles trapped within. The high-speed particles then crash into Earth's upper atmosphere over the polar regions, causing the atmosphere to emit a ghostly, multicolored glow.
