How Do Auroras Form?

Northern Lights Colors GIF By BBC America

Auroras form when colorful lights show up in the night sky. It's like a special space light show! Here's how it happens:

The Sun sends out invisible stuff called "solar wind." When this wind reaches Earth, it meets the air up high in the sky. They give each other a little push and start to glow like a glow stick at a party. This glowing air creates beautiful colors in the sky, like green, pink, and purple. That's the Aurora, and it's like the Earth and the Sun are having a magical light dance together! 🥰

Solar Storm

Get The Look: Solar Storm

The Sun's surface is like a giant cauldron of bubbling energy. Every now and then, this energy gets all worked up and starts doing a sensational shimmy, creating what we call a solar storm. It's like the Sun's way of showing off its moves!

Now, these solar storms are a bit like sending out a spacey text message to all the planets and even our own Earth. This message comes in the form of super-fast particles and crazy-strong magnetic fields. When these particles and fields reach Earth, they can cause quite the spectacle!

But, hold on tight, because just like any good party, there can be a bit of chaos. These storms might also mess around with communication signals, power grids, and even those GPS thingamajigs. But don't worry, scientists are like the party planners of space – they're always studying solar storms to help us stay safe and be prepared.

So, next time you're gazing up at the stars and wondering what's happening in the cosmos, remember that our Sun is throwing a solar storm shindig. It's like a dazzling light show with a hint of space mischief, keeping our universe as exciting as a celestial dance floor!

Phases of the Moon

Full Moon Gif by NASA on GIPHY

Imagine the Moon as a big, round flashlight in the sky. The phases of the Moon are like the different shapes the light from that flashlight makes as it shines on Earth.

New Moon: At the start, the flashlight is turned off, and the Moon looks completely dark because the side facing us doesn't get any sunlight.

Waxing Crescent: A tiny sliver of light appears, like the Moon is starting to smile. This happens because a little bit of sunlight is reaching the side we can see.

First Quarter (Half Moon): The light gets bigger, and now it looks like half of the Moon is glowing. It's like the Moon is showing us half of its face.

Waxing Gibbous: More of the Moon is lit up, but it's still not completely round. It's getting brighter because more of the sunny side is coming into view.

Full Moon: Now the flashlight is super bright, and the entire Moon looks like a big circle in the sky. It's as if the Moon is saying, "Hello, I'm all lit up!"

Waning Gibbous: The flashlight starts to get a bit dimmer as the lit part gets smaller. The Moon is slowly going back to being less bright.

Last Quarter (Half Moon): Just like before, half of the Moon is lit up, but this time it's the other half that we can see.

Waning Crescent: The last sliver of light is disappearing, and the Moon looks like it's frowning. It's becoming darker again as less of the sunny side is visible.

And then, it goes back to the New Moon phase, and the whole cycle starts over again! The changing shapes of the Moon are because of how the Moon moves around the Earth and how the Sun's light hits it from different angles.

How Stars are Formed

Get Notified: A Star Is Born

Cosmic Waves

Stars are born from huge clouds of gas and dust floating in space. These clouds are like cosmic nurseries where new stars are made.

First, something triggers the cloud to start squeezing together because of gravity. Imagine squeezing a fluffy pillow until it becomes smaller and tighter. When the cloud gets squeezed, it gets really hot at the center. It becomes so hot that it starts to glow and shine. This is the birth of a star! The glowing and shining is caused by a special kind of fire inside the cloud, where tiny pieces of gas come together and make lots of heat and light. This is called nuclear fusion, and it's what makes stars bright and beautiful. Once the star is born, it starts shining in the sky and can live for a very long time, giving off light and heat for all of us to see and feel.

The Color of Stars

The Color of The Stars from Hottest to Coldest on

Imagine galaxies as huge families of stars, kind of like neighborhoods of twinkling lights in the night sky. Now, just like people, stars can have different colors that tell us something cool about them. These colors are like temperature tags for stars.

Blue Stars: Think of these as the "super hot" stars. They're like the fiery, sizzling ones in the family. Blue stars are really, really hot, much hotter than a summer day! They're like stellar firecrackers, shining super bright. When you see a galaxy with lots of blue stars, you're looking at a place with lots of energy and excitement.

Bluish White Stars: These stars are like the comfortable warm blankets of the family. They're not as scorching as the blue stars, but they're still quite toasty. White stars emit a nice, cozy light that's not too flashy, but not too chilly either.

Yellow Stars: Ah, these stars are like the friendly, familiar ones in the family. Our very own Sun is a yellow star! They give off a warm, golden glow that's just right for things like giving us daylight and making plants grow. Yellow stars are like dependable friends who are always there for you.

Orange Stars: Picture these stars as the cozy campfires of the galaxy. They're not as hot as yellow stars, but they're still pretty warm. Orange stars have a nice, soothing light that can make you feel all comfy and relaxed.

Red Stars: These stars are like the gentle, mellow members of the family. They're not very hot compared to the others, but they're still shining softly. Red stars give off a calm, subtle light, almost like a nightlight in the dark.

So, when you look at a galaxy and see different colors of stars, you're basically seeing a rainbow of temperatures! It's like a big cosmic family where everyone has their unique personality and warmth. Isn't it amazing how the colors of this wrap can tell us so much about the stars in our universe? 

Shooting Stars

Shooting Stars Love GIF

Shooting stars are like the stars that want to surprise us with a quick "ta-da!" They zoom across the darkness, leaving a trail of sparkling magic behind them. 

But here's the fun part: shooting stars aren't really stars at all! They're actually tiny bits of dust and rock from space that decide to take a super speedy ride through our atmosphere. As they whiz through, they get so heated up that they glow brilliantly, like mini fireballs putting on a dazzling performance. So, the next time you spot a shooting star, make a wish and enjoy the show from the universe's own pyrotechnics crew!

Get The Look: Falling For A Shooting Star


Get Notified: Supernova

Picture a star that's been twinkling in the night sky for billions of years, throwing its cosmic light party. But then, one day, it decides to go out with the biggest, brightest bang ever – and that's a supernova! It's like a star's grand finale fireworks show but way more spectacular.

When a star gets super old and runs out of fuel, it's like it's throwing a tantrum in space. It collapses in on itself, and then suddenly BOOM! It explodes in a burst of energy that's brighter than a zillion stars combined. It's so intense that, for a while, that one star shines as bright as a whole galaxy. Imagine a celestial glitter cannon firing off, scattering star stuff everywhere.

Supernovae aren't just about flashy lights – they're cosmic recycling events. They spread out all sorts of cool elements into space, like the glitter and confetti after a big party. Those elements then mix and mingle, becoming the stuff that makes up planets, moons, and even us! So, next time you're gazing at the night sky, remember that the stars might be planning their own dazzling surprise party in the universe someday! 


Get The Look: Watercolor Nebula

A nebula is a vast cloud of gas and dust that floats in space. Nebulas come in different shapes, sizes, and colors, and they can be found throughout our galaxy and beyond.

Nebulas can be nurseries where new stars are born. The gas and dust in a nebula can come together because of gravity, forming clumps that eventually become stars. Other nebulas are the remnants of old stars that have exploded in massive bursts called supernovae. These explosions scatter the elements from the star's core into space, creating beautiful clouds of colorful gasses. When light from nearby stars or other sources shines on these gases, they glow and create stunning, often mesmerizing, celestial scenes.

Nebulas are like cosmic art galleries, showcasing the incredible beauty and diversity of the universe. They capture the imagination of astronomers and space enthusiasts as they reveal the intricate processes that shape the cosmos.
