    They are caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora_borealis If you want to know more about them, take Walter Lewin's OCW 8.02!

    Though its a college level course, you will understand it with some basic knowledge from high school. Otherwise just take the Aurora lecture ;)
