Quick question about auroras.

Hi,
I came across a system consisting in only one black hole and three planets. At least one of the planets had bright auroras despite the absence of star, and it puzzled me. Is such a thing possible?

It might be, actually, due to the fact that black holes have magnetic fields, but auroras are caused by charged particles filtering through the atmosphere, which black holes don't normally give off unless it has an accretion disk...does it have one?

From what I remember, it didn't have any.

Hm...I don't know, then. Strange...
