The Aurora Borealis lights up the night sky in Ukraine’s Kyiv Region

Kyiv region (Ukraine) (AFP) – The Aurora Borealis, a rare atmospheric phenomenon commonly known as the Northern Lights, sent vivid flares of purple, green and red across the night sky above Ukraine’s Kyiv region the evening of 5 November. The multicoloured natural illuminations, caused by interactions between solar winds and the Earth’s magnetic field, were also spotted in the Kharkiv, Chernigiv, Odesa, Kirovograd, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions.
