    Actually, auroras are caused by particles from the Sun interacting with the molecules in the atmosphere. Sure, Mercury has a magnetic field that can contribute to auroras, but Mercury does not have an atmosphere, so there is no matter for the particles to interact with, thus auroras on Mercury are impossible.

    It's not wise to lie to other people. I'd suggest you get your facts straight and fix this thread.
