The Royal Canadian Mint has unveiled its last silver coin in the hugely popular series “A Story of the Northern Lights.”

The northern lights or aurora borealis are, simply put, nature’s ultimate light show. This spectacular natural phenomenon can occasionally be seen in the night sky over both polar regions and in countries close to these locations. Once seen, it is never forgotten. In the southern hemisphere, the amazing light show is referred to as the aurora australis, or southern lights.

Just what causes this phenomenon? These occurrences are easy to explain, according to Aurora Service Europe, a northern lights bulletin service that tracks and alerts its readers to impending events around the northern polar region. Auroras occur when gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere collide with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere. Solar winds blow charged particles known as electrons and protons toward Earth, where they are largely deflected by the Earth’s magnetic field. However, that magnetic field is weaker at either pole, allowing some particles to enter the atmosphere and collide with gas particles. These collisions emit light that we perceive as the dancing lights of the auroras.
