Morinville – Clear skies provided an excellent opportunity for residents to see the aurora borealis Monday night. The illumination was clearly visible around 7:30 Oct. 24 and is caused by charged particles colliding with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere. The name aurora borealis is derived from the Roman goddess of morning and the Greek word for north wind.
