Event Details

Do we really understand the northern lights? Tour operators will have us believe that we do, but there are still mysteries hidden behind the dancing curtains of light. 

Interweaving the science with a background of their history, folklore and changing landscape, Aurora brings together space, place and science in magnificent style. In a journey that takes her through Scandinavia, Canada and Svalbard, culminating in a spectacular solar eclipse, Dr Melanie Windridge delves into the Northern Lights. !

This inspiring lecture, based on the book of the same name, describes our connection to the Sun, the scientific processes behind the lights, and some of the unwanted technological effects of Space Weather - with beautiful images and adventure stories!

Dr Windridge will also be available after the talk to sign copies of her book.
