Description
Have you ever wanted to see the Aurora Borealis? Here is your chance to find out what causes the “Northern Lights” and how to observe them. Since they are tied to storm activity on the Sun, we’ll examine the Sun-Earth connection and why our magnetic field is key in creating this phenomenon. But we’ll also look at the stories and folklore of the aurora, from Canada and Scandinavia to the southern hemisphere where they are known as the Aurora Australis.
