Residents and tourists viewed the magnificent aurora borealis, or northern lights, in Mohe, Heilongjiang province, China's northernmost city, early on Monday.

The aurora, mainly colored red and green, ripple alternately across the night sky at high latitudes, attracting visitors along the frozen banks of the Heilongjiang River to capture the moment with their mobile phones.

Auroras are caused by the earth's natural electrical fields in both the northern and southern hemispheres. The most famous is the aurora borealis, which appears in high-latitude regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

"For many years, I have yearned to come to Beiji village to witness the aurora borealis," tourist Wang Jing said. "I feel very lucky and excited that I could truly achieve my wish."

Located at China's highest latitude, Mohe is one of the best places in the country to observe nature's light show. Numerous photographers come to chase the aurora every year. The city has experienced multiple occurrences since the beginning of 2023.
