While studying lesson 2 about the sun in Apologia's Exploring Creation with Astronomy, we read about auroras. I decided to do a quick search to find a video to help illustrate. I found this video. Take a look:
Can't see the video in your email or RSS reader?
Stunning. Simply amazing.
I learned some interesting things during our study of the sun. Solar flares cause these auroras. And did you know that sun spots (cold spots on the sun) help regulate the earth's temperature and rainfall? With the intricacies of the sun and relationship to the earth, how can anyone deny that there is a Creator?
I'm linking up with my friend Kathy and sharing what I as a homeschooling mom learned this month!
