The thermosphere and the ionosphere are roughly the same and have their names based upon what you are investigating.  If it is temperature, then it is the "thermosphere."  If you are looking a ions (charged particals like electrons), then it is called the ionosphere.  The lower part of the ionosphere (region "E") is where the aurora (borealis and australis) take place.

The northern lights are more formally known as auroras, and are caused by interactions between the solar wind and the Earth's magnetic field.

'Fire rainbows' are a rare phenomenon that only occur when the Sun is higher than 58° above the horizon and its light passes through cirrus clouds made of ice crystals.
