Aurora and Magnetism Across the Solar System

The Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading is pleased to announce that it will be holding the following event during British Science Week, to which you are invited:

Aurora and Magnetism Across the Solar System

Aurorae, or northern and southern lights, are one of nature’s spectacular light shows but why do they occur on our planet and would we expect to see it anywhere else in the solar system? This talk will discuss how the aurora is generated, when and where is best to see it on Earth and where else you could expect to see it in the universe!

Join Dr Chris Scott for this British Science week Lecture at the Department of Meteorology to find out more about this fascinating phenomenon and find out more about Meteorology and Environmental Physics opportunities at the University of Reading.

Date: Wednesday 16th March 2016
