Science in the Mountains: The Aurora Borealis and other Atmospheric Optics
Lourdes B. Avilés, Ph.D., Professor of Meteorology, Plymouth State University; Ryan Knapp, Weather Observer/Staff Meteorologist, Mount Washington Observatory

Between the breathtaking northern lights and the ghostly appearance of Brocken spectre, Mount Washington makes for an ideal location for viewing atmospheric optics and phenomena such as the aurora borealis. Plymouth State University Professor of Meteorology Dr. Lourdes Avilés will join us to talk about the vast Sun-Earth connections behind the appearance of the aurora borealis and help make sense of the science behind these and other visual displays, while MWOBS Staff Meteorologist Ryan Knapp will share his experience capturing atmospheric optics behind the camera.
