We have two new globes in MADGIC. Please visit us on the 1st floor of the MacOdrum Library.

Globe: tactile and visual has a tactile clear plastic overlay. Among the overlay's features are continent outlines, higher and lower elevations, and raised latitute and longitude lines.

Sky & Telescope's Mercury globe  shows the topography of the planet.

Watch the Aurora Borealis swirl & flame over Canada.

From NASA:

The dancing lights in the image above are the aurora borealis or Northern Lights. These auroras are at their most dynamic during geomagnetic storms—often the result of solar storms called coronal mass ejections, or CMEs, that originate from the sun.
