    • It’s elevation ranges from 0 to 10 km
  • 5. Stratosphere
    • This layer sits on top of the troposphere
    • It’s elevation ranges from 10 km to around 25 km
    • This layer contains the ozone layer, which protects us from harmful sunlight
  • 6. Mesosphere
    • This layer is above the stratosphere
    • It’s elevation ranges from 25 to 100 km
  • 7. Thermosphere
    • This is the highest layer of the atmosphere
    • It’s height ranges from 100 to 400 km
    • This is where most small meteorites burn up and is also the location in the atmosphere that the northern lights occur (aurora borealis)
