    Aurora Borealis in Finland. The sun gives off high-energy charged particles (called ions) that travel out into space at speeds up to 1200 kilometers per second. A cloud of such particles is called a plasma. The stream of plasma coming from the sun is known as the solar wind. As the solar wind interacts with the edge of the earth's magnetic field, some of the particles are trapped and follow the lines of magnetic force down into the ionosphere. When the particles hit the gases they glow.
