    Northern Lights in India! Auroras Light Up Ladakh Skies in Rare Display

    A lot of travellers have watching Northern Lights on their bucket list.
    Finland, Norway, Russia, and Alaska are the most common spots to watch this spectacle.
    In a first rare spectacle shared by the Indian Astronomical Observatory, Auroras have been spotted on the night of April 22-23, right after the coronal mass ejection or the solar flare that hit the planet.
    In a video that has now captured all eyes on social media, the Indian Institute of Astrophysics shared a 360-degree video of the Auroras spotted in Hanle region of Ladakh.
    This is the first time an Aurora has been captured on camera in India.
    The Northern Lights or Auroras occur when there is an interaction between the plasma particles hurled by the Sun and Earth's magnetic field.
