Since ancient times, mankind's fascination with the awe-inspiring aurora has been reflected in legends and journals. Yet it wasn't until 1905 that researchers first began to understand the science behind the northern lights. In the last one hundred years, scientists have learned much more, but they still don't have all the answers. This book presents information on the science, history, and mythology behind the magical light of the aurora. Illustrated throughout with photographs, woodcuts depicting the wonder of the ancients, plus explanatory diagrams, charts, and satellite photographs, this guide is for both the serious aurora watchers and the casual sky gazers.
