The Mysterious Northern LightsBook - 1995
Candace Savage explores the myth and science behind the aurora. She reveals the surprisingly common threads in the auroral traditions of distant cultures and follows the long, colorful, and sometimes fractious path that led scientists to the contemporary theory about the lights. Savage cuts through the morass of geophysical data and mathematical formulae to give us a lucid and fascinating account of how the lights happen.
