Caption

Oil pipeline and aurora. The aurora is a coloured light display visible in the night sky at high latitudes. It occurs when charged and energetic particles from the Sun (the solar wind) are drawn by Earth's magnetic field to the polar regions. Hundreds of kilometres up, they collide with gas molecules and atoms, causing them to emit light. This pipeline is carrying crude oil through Siberian pine forests. Siberia has enormous reserves of oil, gas and coal.
