Aurora Borealis: the Folklore of the Northern Lights - # ...
T he Roman goddess of the dawn (analogous to the Greek goddess Eos, the Germanic Ēostre, the Irish Brigid, etc.), Aurora is the sister of Sol and Luna, and early each day she races across the sky, dressed in saffron, heralding the arrival of her brother, the sun. Even though she is the sunrise, her name has been taken to denote the lights that appear in certain conditions in the northern hemisphere (the Aurora Borealis) and in the southern hemisphere (the Aurora Australis).
