fueled by the cosmic winds and produced by Mother Nature
In the cosmic realm we think of the Northern Lights as God’s own Lumia light, produced by Mother Nature. The northern lights, Aurora Borealis, is suitably named (Aurora) after the Roman goddess of dawn and the Greek name Boreas for the northern wind, by Pierre Gassendi in 1621. The Aurora Borealis lighting effects appear all the top part of the Northern hemisphere and are seen mostly in the Northern latitudes of various North American and Scandinavian evening skies.
Like undulating veils of gently wind swept curtains, the Aurora Borealis wash across the night skies like turbocharged Lumia writ large across the Vault of Heaven. Those versed in Lumia patterning will immediately recognize a visual relationship between human created analog or digital Lumia constructions and Mother Nature’s Lumia sky markings.
As for the ‘real deal’ as explained by a recent Wikipedia entry:
An aurora (from the Latin word aurora to mean ‘sunrise’) is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitudes of the artic and anartic regions. The resulting illuminations are caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere (thermosphere). The charged particles originate in the magnetosphere and solar wind and, on earth are directed by the earth’s magnetic field into the atmosphere. The resulting illuminated aurora patterns vary in brightness from just barely visible to the naked eye, to bright enough to read a newspaper by at night.
Auroras seen near the magnetic pole may be high overhead and seen as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the sun were rising from an unusual direction. Varying aurora patterns often display magnetic field lines or curtain-like structures and can change within seconds or glow unchanging for hours, most often in fluorescent green.
The northern lights have a number of names through out history. The Cree call this phenomena the “Dance of the Spirits.” In Europe, in the Middle Ages, he auroras were commonly believed to be a sign from God.
God’s light or its humanistic artistic counterpart generally induce the same effect: speechless wonder as one gazes into the endless depths of celestial infinity.
