A new website launched this week allows the wonders of the northern lights to be viewed from the comfort -- and relative warmth -- of your own home.

The AuroraMAX website operated by the Canadian Space Agency is streaming a live feed of the colorful auroras from northern Canada each night from now until May.

Auroras are ribbons of colorful light that can be seen sweeping across the northern skies on winter nights. They are created by charged particles from the sun colliding with gasses in the Earth's atmosphere.

"Armchair skywatchers everywhere can now discover the wonder of the northern lights live on their home computer screen," CSA President Steve MacLean said in a statement. "We hope that watching the dance of the northern lights will make you curious about the science of the sky and the relationship we have with our own star, the sun."
