Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights, is an awesome light show caused by electrically charged particles from the sun entering the earth’s upper atmosphere. A space plasma expert describes how this phenomenon happens and where best to see it. Métis elder Robert Coulter shares aurora legends that have emerged from different cultures. Some traditions regard these dancing, coloured lights as evil and have associated superstitions. Other indigenous traditions see ancestors dancing and talismans of good luck. Doc concludes with the Salmon People’s Legend of the Northern Lights.
