Instruments, all he proposed was to lay down practical rules for workmen. For
though he proceeded himself, in every part of the work, upon principles ; yet he

we have headed subdivisions throughout the whole report. The somewhat

Humans have been recording aurorae since the Babylonians made astronomical

What causes the aurorae? As solar particles move into Earth's magnetosphere
they travel to its day or night side along the magnetic field lines. When these
magnetic field lines reconnect in an area known as the magnetotail, energy is
released, ...
