  • 6-18-2017 Plasma is not fire, it is electrically charged particles. When a charged particle moves, that is an electric current. The northern lights are a glow discharge lamp, same as a neon light, powered by electric current from the sun and mostly nitrogen for the glowing gas. The electric current is called "solar wind" by people who know nothing about electricity. SRSLY, there are scientists who will tell you that electricity has no effect outside of equipment specifically designed to use it.
