The Biggest Light Show on Earth

triBox

The Northern Lights have captivated us for centuries, inspiring countless folklore legends with their shifting, glowing forms and otherworldly behaviour. Yet the story of what actually happens to generate this stunning celestial show is every bit as extraordinary as those great mythic tales. In this talk, astronomer Will Gator explores how violent events on the surface of the sun interact with the earth’s upper atmosphere to create these incredible swirling curtains of light. You can also find out how to experience the magic of the Northern Lights for yourself.
