Aurora lights shine beautifully in Antarctica

Video

ANTARCTICA (CNN) — A spectacular aurora light show brightened up the night sky above China’s Zhongshan Research Station in Antarctica.

The aurora is a natural light phenomenon that occurs when charged particles from the sun interact with gasses in Earth’s atmosphere.

Typically, they are only visible in higher-latitude regions.

This view was recorded by Chinese researchers who are on their 35th Antarctic Mission at Zhongshan Research Station.
