Auroras and Other Glows in the Sea and Sky

  • Gregory I. Redfern
Part of the The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)


In this, our last chapter on astronomical objects, we will look at what glows in the sky and in the sea. Some of the phenomena in this chapter take place high and low in Earth’s atmosphere, while one comes from space and another is in the sea. If the Moon is bright in the sky, some of them will be harder to see, so you will have to keep that in mind when you go hunting for these wonderful visual treats above and below your ship. Good luck and clear, dark skies!
