Hi,

On Wikipedia there are some nice photos:

Has anybody got an example of something like this?


Best regards,

idea 1

since the aurora is a plasma particles would work great you can try fluid particles also you can use fields to influence particles

idea 2
you could use ribbons of mesh with transparency enabled and paint them
