Scientists have bottled the Earth’s most colourful light show, along with several auroras from other planets.

The colours were created inside a glass dome known as a Planeterrella where charged particles glow vividly when exposed to a magnetic field.

This is similar process to that which creates the Northern Lights and will help scientists better understand how different auroras are formed.
