The northern lights showcase in the lands of Ladakh

We all love the northern lights, some due to a celestial projection or some for the beauty of the universe. So, if you are one of the stargazers, Ladakh should be the next stop for you! A region in the western Himalayas at an elevation of 4,500 meters (14,764 ft), has become the stargazer spot in India.

Hanle Observatory, one of the highest-located sites for optical, infrared, and gamma-ray telescopes in the world is situated in the area. According to the reports, The Hanle Observatory is one the highest optical telescopes in the world.

The region has recently become an ultimate destination for stargazers, bloggers, scientists, and influencers as it showcased an astronomical light show, Aurora Borealis. It is one of the results of the solar storm that displays the beauty of cosmic events.

The observatory recently released a time-lapse of this cosmic event which stunned a lot of people.
As we know, the Aurora Borealis is a cosmic event that is usually seen in countries like Finland, Norway, Greenland, and Iceland. However, for some events it is also displayed in the region of Ladakh.
