Happy New Year

Happy holidays, everyone! Andersen Library is closed Thursday-Saturday, December 31-January 2. Online resources like ebooks and article databases, and the Ask a Librarian chat service, remain available if you need them (see the Break & Winterim Libary Hours blog post for links)! See you on Sunday, January 3 at noon!

And if you are looking for a different way to end the year, why not look for brightening effect of Monday’s solar coronal mass ejection (CME) on the aurora today, which may make the Northern Lights visible as far south as Illinois, according to the Space Weather Prediction Center (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)? See the web page from Discovery News, “Sun Blasts Flare at Earth: New Year’s Eve Storm?” Also see NASA’s stunning images of the same thing happening in July 2015, “CME Arrival Results in Aurora Show.”
