Introducing Bangladeshi Foreigner: A New Section

The adventurous and travel-thirsty people of Bangladesh appreciate tales and experiences from places beyond their borders. For that reason, I have decided to start a new section called “Bangladeshi Foreigner” on Dhaka 24. In this section, I will share my own experiences and events from Canada and across the globe. I hope you will like these global perspectives and will visit often.

Northern Lights

The northern lights, or aurora borealis, are a natural phenomenon of dancing lights in the skies above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. Northern lights are caused by collisions between particles that are electrically charged from the sun entering earth’s atmosphere.

Canada is the world’s best place the see the northern lights. Canadian northern places such as Alberta, Yukon, Nunavut, and the Northwest Territories are very popular places to see the northern lights and each year thousands of tourists from all over the world come to Canada only to see the northern lights.

The northern lights are not visible from Canadian cities that are not in the north, such as Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, or other cities. However, due to the largest solar particle eruption in two decades, the night skies all over Canada had a rare opportunity to see the northern lights for 2-3 nights around March 18, 2015.

So Canadians who never had the time or opportunity to visit northern places to view the northern lights before grabbed this once-in-a-lifetime show in the skies by simply staying at their own homes.
