-Of or like the dawn.
-Pertaining to the aurora borealis or aurora australis.
From the Latin aurōra meaning "dawn; dawn goddess; east." It entered English in the mid-1500s.
Used in a sentence:
"There was not in all that vanished October one day that did not come in with auroral splendour and go out attended by a fair galaxy of evening stars—not a day when there were not golden lights in the wide pastures and purple hazes in the ripened distances."
~Lucy Maud Montgomery, The Golden Road, 1913
