Video of Southern Lights - level 1
There are Southern Lights in New Zealand. A camera films them. People also see them in Australia, America and Europe.
The Southern Lights are like the Northern Lights. People also call them auroras. You can see them at night in the sky. They look like big lines of colours. They move. They are very pretty.
You can see them all year. You can see them really well two times a year. That is during the spring and autumn equinoxes.
Auroras come from particles. The particles from our planet hit the particles from the sun.
Difficult words: aurora (a big line of light in the sky), equinox (when you are in the middle of a season), particle (a little bit of energy).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
