Video of Southern Lights – level 1

17-05-2022 15:00

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.

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 watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

Have you seen the Southern or Northern Lights?
