In which layer of the atmosphere the aurora is created?

In the Troposphere
In the Stratosphere
In the mesosphere
In the Thermosphere
Auroras are produced when the mag­ne­to­sphere is suf­fi­cient­ly dis­turbed by the solar wind that the tra­jec­to­ries of charged par­ti­cles in both solar wind and mag­ne­to­spher­ic plasma, mainly in the form of elec­trons and protons, pre­cip­i­tate them into the upper at­mos­phere (ther­mo­sphere/ex­o­sphere) due to Earth's magnetic field, where their energy is lost.
