This is just an amusing piece
of silly science from ZetaTalk. The
explanation of an aurora is really strange. I really enjoyed the
part that said the aurora would be visible at the equator but
was "lost in the glare". Anyone seen this glare? Do people at
the equator need sunglasses at night?
Quote from Zetatalk:
"And what has caused these light rays to be deflected at this
point, to become Northern or Southern Lights, and why no
other point on the globe? In fact, they are being deflected
elsewhere around the globe, but are not visible because of
the greater traffic in bright light. The Northern or Southern
Lights, happening at the equator, are lost in the glare."

Why don't Auroras happen near the equator?
