Description:

This is an activity about auroras. Learners will use images from the IMAGE (Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration) satellite and measure the diameter of aurora ovals to identify if there is a correlation between severe magnetic storms and larger auroras. This is the seventeenth activity in the Exploring the Earth's Magnetic Field: An IMAGE Satellite Guide to the Magnetosphere educators guide.
