Tonights talk will be by Andrew Green on the subject of Aurora. If you have seen aurora for real you will know how spectacular they can be, though this is a rare event in the UK! The aurora is an amazing natural phenomenon showing the interaction of the Sun and the Earth. As an Aurora guide in Iceland, lecturer and veteran of over 500 aurora tours Andy is well placed to explain what causes the aurora, the science behind it and the legends associated with it.
There will be a break for refreshments and an update on recent astronomy news.
