Visiting the Arctic to see the northern lights is often on people's bucket lists, but what about the northern lights on Mars?
Scientists have sent a probe to the Red Planet to find out how it lost most of its atmosphere. Now that probe has seen a bright ultraviolet glow across Mars's northern hemisphere. These spectacular effects are caused by high-energy particles from the Sun colliding with the Martian atmosphere.
I hope I get to see the northern lights one day, on one planet or another.
