Basically how would I make a aurora effect around an object? Is this more animation side? Or is this doable within Construct 2?

use particle effect.. set it to continuous spray and pin it to the object (if the object moves)

you have to play with the particle settings.. it's a trial and error process to make it look good.

It really depends on what effect you have in mind. For a simple halo glow I might use a circle sprite with blend mode Additive and pin it to the object. To make the effect more interesting, you could use the sine behavior and link it to opacity. Particles are good for this as well, it just depends on what effect you have seen and like the look of.
