I am doing a research paper on the Aurora Borealis, and I came to conflicting information, so my science teacher told me to find a scientist online to help me. I looked up the Aurora Borealis in two encyclopedias. One said, that the Aurora is more active during the 11 year sunspot cycle, and when the sun is active (solar flares). The other encyclopedia said that the more active the sun is, the less active the aurora is. These totally controdict eachother, and it is a very important difference. Please Help! Thank oyu!
