In case of duplicate questions, the author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: Reeny Robinson, 12, Austin, Texas One of the most spectacular sights to be seen in the heavens is the "aurora polaris," or the polar light. In the northern hemisphere these lights are called the aurora b or e a 1 i s, or northern lights. In the southern hemisphere they are known as the aurora aus- tralis. A faint arc of light is seen in the dark northern sky after sunset. Suddenly the arc breaks up into parallel rays of light. The colors in these rays, which are usually pale green and red and yellow, become deeper. Sometimes the parallel rays take a form that seems to look like a curtain or drapery. These draperies, together with long streamers of light, may cover the whole sky. Sometimes the rays come together overhead to form what is called the "corona," or crown. It is a sight to make you gasp with wonder! There are two things that seem to be connected with this amazing display of Light. One is sunspot activity on the sun, the other is the earth's magnetism. It has been noticed that when there is flare-up on the sun, an aurora is likely to follow after a day or so. This means that something from the sun reaches the earth at a speed of about 1,000 miles per second, which is less than 1 per cent of the speed of light, The arrangement of the aurora, is center, the high point of the arc, the way the bands and rays are arranged, all show some relationship to the magnetic north pole. So it would seem that electrically charged particles from the sun are guided to the earth by the earth's magnetic field and these particles cause the lights. But exactly how or why this happens still isn't known. It is believed that protons and electron from the sun bombard the upper atmosphere of the earth. A collision between one of these fast particles and an atom or molecule in the upper atmosphere produce a certain amount of light, with a color that depends on the atom or molecule involved. Since about 100 million protons and electrons strike one square inch of atmosphere per second— this can produce quite a bit of light! FUN TIME The Chuckle Box A man who had just been released from jail was walking down the street saying joyously: "I'm free! I'm free!" "So what?" said a tot. "I'm four!" Two mosquitoes were resting on Robinson Crusoe's back. Said one: "I'm leaving now. See you on Friday." WHERE AKE YOU?
