Teacher/Group Leader Information:The Sky Above—Earth's Upper Atmosphere

Solar Week always devotes a day -- and online discussion time -- to a special solar-related theme. This time, it’s Earth's upper atmosphere, which includes the ionosphere and the breathtaking phenomenon known as the aurora (or Northern Lights).

In addition to our usual wonderful and knowledgeable solar scientists answering your questions about the Sun-Earth connection, we've invited an expert on aurora to join us for a live webinar during the week of March 18-22, 2019. And we have provided some helpful links to a couple of websites which provide information, videos and activities on the the aurora and on the ionosphere.
