FINLAND ~Northern Lights~

Great wintery scene with one of the most amazing natural wonders of the world... "Aurora Borealis"!(FI-1396819) Thanks Eeve!:D

And again with the very cute Easter stamp!

The Northern Lights are created when charged particles from solar wind hit the atmosphere of the earth.The most common colours of the Northern Lights are greenish-yellow and red.

There have been many myths about the Northern Lights.The people of Norway thought the lights were dead warriors fighting.The Vikings thought they were female messengers of the God Odin, to mark those to be killed in battle. The people of Laps and Finland believed they were messangers of God. The Nothern Lights were one of the last unsloved mysteries of the natural world!
