Aurora Borealis is derived from the Greek words Aurora meaning "sunrise" and "Boreas" meaning "wind". The Greeks held the idea that Aurora was the sister of Helios and Seline, the sun and moon respectively, and that she raced across the early morning sky in her multi-coloured chariot to alert her siblings to the dawning of a new day.
