Aurora

Aurora

The stunning Northern Lights have been beloved and the source of myth for thousands of years, but beneath their beauty is the larger story of the causes and effects of the Aurora. The film explains how the sun functions and how during the cycle of normal solar activities coronal mass ejections (CME) or solar flares are regularly formed. Using real images and stunning graphics viewers follow the CME through space and view the effects on earth in sequences of beautiful Aurora imagery. Scientists then explain how the CME creates the Aurora and how it collapses earths magnetosphere causing electricity to form within conductive items like power lines. Scientists show how a small CME and earth has a wonderful light show, a large CME and our power grid collapses and talk about ways we can be prepared for the next big solar event. The film comes with a very extensive educators guide and supplementary materials. VERSIONS: 22min Full Dome, 22min 2K, 4K and 15/70mm, 40min 2k and 4K
