Aurora Borealis, 'Northern Lights' brighten sky over Cobourg, Ontario Canada

A photographer captured the amazing Aurora Borealis dancing in the night sky over Canada on Sunday.

The so-called "Northern Lights" happen when electrically-charged particles from the sun collide with the earth's atmosphere.

C-N-N iReporter Malcolm Park recorded these images with his camera in Cobourg, Ontario -- about 70 miles east of Toronto.

According to NASA these types of lights also occur near the South Pole, where they are known as the Southern Lights and Aurora Australis.
