Aurora in Arizona

Sorry, your browser doesn't support Java

In March 1989, fifteen inches of rain fell in a few days at Senora, Arizona - that's more than their normal annual rainfall. As if that wasn't unusual enough, an aurora, seldom seen so far south, was seen one night. This image is based on a picture taken then.

Two Java applets have been used to produce this page. We used the Dorian GrayII applet to produce the lake at the bottom and the Anfy Huerot to produce the cycling colours of the aurora.
