Dan’s talk will be on Aurora. He will start with what the aurora actually are , i.e. the reactions with charged particles with different elements in the atmosphere and how the magnetosphere channels them. He’ll  then move onto solar events that release them and why they like equinoxes. He’ll also describe how other phenomena, that look like aurora, are formed. 

We meet at 19:00 for a 19:30 kickoff
