Overview Nordlyset

The Northern Lights have fascinated humans throughout times. When the colours dance across the sky, it almost seems like magic. In more recent times the interest in the Northern Lights is increasing with the introductions of technology that can forecast the lights and analyse the magnetism of the atmosphere. And all signs point to us being able to see a lot of Northern Lights in the years to come. The sun is entering an active phase and makes the night sky light up in green, turquoise, purple and red. With a little help from this book, it’ll be easier to find the lights on your own. You’ll also learn what the Northern Lights can tell us about the world around us.

Most people cannot see neither atoms nor galaxy clusters in their daily lives, but everyone can see the Northern Lights. And both the colours and the shape of the lights tell a story about what’s happening above our heads. After reading this book, you’ll be able to gaze up at the sky and know how the Northern Lights are put together that night. In addition to this, the book addresses incredible myths, how animals experience the lights, how the lights affect us and our technology – and even Northern Lights on other planets!
