Dazzling Northern Lights Anticipated Saturday Night

Dazzling Northern Lights Anticipated Saturday Night | My School | Scoop.it

"A solar flare that occurred around 2 a.m. Thursday morning may create a spectacular display of northern lights Saturday evening. The midlevel flare had a long duration and was directed at Earth.  Solar flares create auroras when radiation from the sun reaches Earth and interacts with charged protons in our atmosphere. The effects are greater at the magnetic poles and weaken as they move south from the Arctic or north of the Antarctic. In the northern hemisphere the results are called the aurora borealis, with the aurora australis being its southern counterpart. The result is a spectacular display of light and color for areas with clear enough views."

For more information and predictions, see the Alaska Geophysical Institute's website, which has plenty of experience predicting the Aurora Borealis.

I saw them in East Lansing, MI, in about 1980. I got the kids out of bed and we went in our PJ's to the airstrip north of town where we could see them better. It was thrilling!

Corkboard Connections: Are You as Lucky as a Leprechaun?

Corkboard Connections: Are You as Lucky as a Leprechaun? | My School | Scoop.it

Did you ever stop to think how lucky you are? You might, but your students may not. Here's a fun freebie for St. Patrick's Day or Dr. Seuss's birthday, March 2nd. Ask your students if they think they are lucky, and allow time for sharing. If anyone says that they are NOT lucky, it's time to read aloud one of Dr. Seuss's classics, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? By the end of the book, everyone will be giggling, and it will be easy to discuss just how lucky we really are!
