Title: Gallery of Auroras
Url: http://www.teachersdomain.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.eiu.auroras/
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Auroras are natural atmospheric phenomena created when the solar wind interacts with Earth's magnetosphere, which means that an increase in aurora activity indicates an increase in space weather. This interactive slide show presents images of auroral displays on Earth and other planets, and explains how they form, why they have different colors, and how the ethereal shapes are produced. A background essay and list of discussion questions are included.
