Welcome to Aurora School
Here we have tried to explain many aspects of the Northern Lights (and Southern Lights) in a straight forward and easy to digest manner. It is a really stunning and beautiful phenomena, that words don’t do justice. But we tried our best.
- What is the Aurora Borealis
- Best place to see the Northern Lights
- What is “solar max” and why is it important
- How to photograph the Northern Lights
- All about the Kp index (important stuff when it comes to viewing auroras)
- All about ACE spacecraft (Spacecraft monitoring the solar wind)
- Know your aurora jargon (if you don’t know your CME from your CH HSS, this page is useful)
- Northern Lights Folklore - Some of the incredible myths from various tribes/peoples all over the world.
