Melanie Windbridge has put together a wonderful tome describing her search for the perfect aurora. A plasma physicist by trade, Windbridge is Business Development Manager for the fusion start-up Tokamak Energy, and believes that science and exploration go hand in hand.
In Aurora, Windridge explores the visual beauty, the ancient myths and legends, and, of course, the science. She also reveals what I’ve always known was something of a dirty little secret…as far as natural phenomena go you really do get the brightest view from behind a camera. Of course, you still have to find them to take the photograph, in the first place.
