When the lights are witnessed in locations near the North Pole, they are called aurora borealis, and when they are visible in the South they are called aurora australis. However, it is very difficult to locate these lights in the southern part of the Indian peninsula. The edited image received a myriad of responses on social media.

Another user jokingly wrote, “The intricate interaction of the sun's stream of charged particles colliding with oxygen and nitrogen atoms in the earth's magnetosphere at different altitudes leading to the emergence of colours along the auroral ovals is exquisitely captured in this picture.”

“Oh, you're a regular Davinchi with Photoshop, aren't you,” asked a Reddit user.

Taking the joke to another level, a Reddit user wrote, “It's a rainbow, stop fooling people.” Several other users declared the person sharing the post as ‘Photoshop king’.

About auroras

The beautiful lights in the sky are a common sight for countries located near the South and North poles. On Friday, May 10, auroras appeared in full display over Russia, Ukraine, Germany, Slovenia, Britain and other parts of Europe because one of the most powerful solar storms struck Earth.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)'s Space Weather Prediction Centre, the ‘first of several coronal mass ejections (CMEs) -- expulsions of plasma and magnetic fields from the Sun -- came just after 1600 GMT’
