Tonight I helped my daughter print out some web facts and pics for a fifth grade project. We came across some really cool pics of the aurora borealis, with nowhere better to share them than here. Pics taken from northern Russia, along with a few shots from outer space: http://www.funonthenet.in/content/view/178/31/ I never knew that Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune had polar lights! And here are links to several 'live' webcams chasing aurorae. http://www.spacew.com/forum/index.php/topic,209.0.html Most are only 'up' during active auroral times (higher sun activity, clear skies on earth). Next time for the Poker Flats, Alaska site is March 17+. Here's the Alaska site: http://gedds.pfrr.alaska.edu/allsky/realtime.htm Here's a combined site with live data from Sweden, Finland, and Norway: http://www.andreas-wehrle.de/plcams2.htm Takes a while to load, and it's pretty dull when nothing's happening. Aurora links, and the best single photo I found: http://climate.gi.alaska.edu/Curtis/curtis.html Also, the Wikipedia article for 'Northern Lights' has some good pics and a decent explanation. enjoy!
