In astronomy, an aurora is a colorful display of light that results from particles in stellar wind interacting with a planet's magnetic field.

On Earth, the aurora that appears at the North Pole is called aurora borealis. (TNG: "Time's Arrow, Part II", VOY: "Counterpoint")

In 2270, Spock noted that the historical records of the Dramian system were "spotty, at best, going back nineteen years," reporting that "mostly, they're technical data, meteor showers, auroras, [and] radiation reports." (TAS: "Albatross")
