Aurora borealis, or northern lights, is a display of multicoloured lights appearing |in day or night skies in the northern hemisphere. The display of light can vary greatly in intensity, take an indefinite number of shapes, and span a range of colours from green to pale yellow to deep red. A prime spot for viewing these 'dancing lights' is on the north shore of Great Slave Lake in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.
