Pat Shingleton: "Follow the Light"
The Aurora Borealis is never witnessed in south Louisiana but is often viewed in northern regions. Also known as Northern Lights, highly charged electrons from solar wind interact with a variety of atmospheric elements, including gas and dust. These particles, at various levels of the atmosphere, create the spectacular colors of the Aurora Borealis. Tonight at the Louisiana Art and Science Museum, Director Jon Elvert will showcase a presentation on the beauty and science of auroras beginning at 7:00 PM. Attendees will view all of the northern lights from the comfort of their planetarium seats. Japanese tourists visit Fairbanks, Alaska, during Aurora season. Conceiving a child, in the dark, and under the lights, may produce a gifted child.
