Explorers Seminar Series—The Aurora: Nature's Lightshow in the Sky

Thursday, February 2, 2017 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

The Aurora (sometimes called the Northern or Southern Lights) has captivated humankind for centuries. Incoming energy and particles from the sun collide with oxygen and nitrogen molecules in the atmosphere near Earth to release photons of light.  Join Professor Craig Kletzing as he explains this mysterious and beautiful light show.

Reception to follow.
