Quotes

...tuteInstitute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands (IAC) Miquel Serra-Ricart, you will see the Northern Lights from southern Greenland and Iceland. "The Sun continues to show signs of high activity since reaching its peak earlier this year. If we observe auroral must seize the coming months as there is evidence to make us think that the next solar maximum, in eleven years will be less intense than the actual" said Serra-Ricart
...Jonny Cooper adds: "It was seeing the Northern Lights in Bjorkliden and Abisko, in Swedish Lapland, that first captured my imagination about the aurora - it is one of the most remarkable areas to experience the Aurora in its full glory."
"Interpreting what is happening in Venus's ionosphere requires understanding how Venus interacts with its environment in space" concluded Collinson
"This is the first event in a number of months. It has been very quiet throughout the summer" he said
