The Aurora Page

Based at Michigan Tech, the Aurora Page was created by Michael Dolan and celebrates the meteorological phenomenon commonly known as the Northern Lights. For those who may not be familiar with this phenomenon, it is a natural light display that tends to happen in the Arctic and Antarctic regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the thermosphere. On the site's homepage, visitors can view a nice collection of aurora-related links culled from organizations such as NOAA, Johns Hopkins University, and NASA. Moving on, the Images area contains hundreds of high-quality photographs taken all over the world. Also, visitors who are interested in building their own automated aurora detection system will appreciate the link that provides detailed instructions for completing such a project. The site is rounded out by a collection of websites related to space exploration and astronomy.
