Visitors control the aurora when they stand in front of a winter scene. Since few people get to experience the aurora directly, this is meant to be an experiential exhibit where the beauty of the aurora can be appreciated.
Special Feature: Aurora Interactive can be paired with Solar Interactive—when a CME hits the Earth in Solar Interactive, the aurora gets powered-up in Aurora Interactive.
Game Play: A Kinect tracks your arm motion as you control the position and intensity of the aurora. When used with "Planetary Magnetic Fields" (Aurora 1), a serial connection between the computers triggers more active and brighter aurora in this exhibit when Earth is hit by solar flares.
