According to him, the aurora borealis are formed whenElectrically charged particles that come from the sun interact with our Earth’s atmosphere,80 km above our heads.

Robert LaMontagne specifies that these particles are most numerous when the number of solar eruptions is significant.

We’re in the growing part of a cycle of activity that’s expected to peak in late 2024, early 2025. So in the next few years, the number of solar flares is going to increase.Robert Lamontagne explains. It is reported that the sun’s activity cycle is about 11 years.

If particle flux is so important, it has been found to excite particles in the upper atmosphere that produce this luminous phenomenon »

Particles take between 12 hours and 3 days to process [après une éruption solaire] to reach the atmospherehe explains.
