Jet2 offers these Norther Lights holiday packages between September and April, so now it's the perfect time to go.

The Northern Lights, commonly referred to as the Aurora Borealis, are caused by solar particles that are electrically charged colliding with gaseous particles in the atmosphere of our planet.

The most frequent hue of the aurora is green, which is produced when oxygen molecules around 60 miles above the earth react with the particles.

Colour differences occur when various types of gas particles collide with charged particles.
