INFOGRAPHIC: How does location affect the colors you see in an aurora?

By Jessica Clayton

No two views of the aurora are identical. That is one of the reasons why we like to hear your reports during an aurora. The following infographic is the last in our five part series about color. It addresses why the colors may be different when the aurora is overhead rather than on the horizon. Now that we have shared all five infographics from this series, we would love to hear from you! We welcome your suggestions, as well as other topics that you would like to explore.
