Aurora is the Latin word for “dawn, morning light, sunrise” and derives from a PIE root word *h₂ews- (dawn; east). In Roman mythology, Aurora is the name of the goddess of dawn (the Roman counterpart of Greek Eos) and is also the name of an atmospheric phenomenon in which lights at high latitude are created by charged particles from the sun, known as the aurora borealis (northern lights) and aurora australis (southern lights).
