At the meeting of the Lothians Radio Society on Wednesday February 8th Dr. David Gavine talked on "Aurora Explained" - how it is caused by disturbances on the Sun, what it looks like & how it was "explained" in the past, with plenty of illustrations.

Dr Gavine is retired from teaching astro-navigation and meteorology at Leith Nautical College (where Colin Wright GM4HWO was one of his students!) then maths at Jewel & Esk College. He is a Past-President of the Astronomical Society of Edinburgh, former Director of the Aurora Section of the British Astronomical Association, and an amateur astronomer.
