Northern Lights and Spectroscopy
Jun 15 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

What are the northern lights and how do we see them? Formally called the aurora borealis, those beautiful reds, greens, and purples in the sky are an atmospheric phenomenon resulting from complex interactions between solar particles and the Earth’s magnetic field. We’ll look at the physics behind the aurora and get a good idea of what to do to see it well.
