Hearts in The Ice | Dr. Elizabeth MacDonald: Aurora Borealis

Dr. Liz MacDonald works for NASA at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. She leads a citizen science project called Aurorasaurus, which uses citizen science and social media to predict the Northern and Southern Lights. In 2018 MacDonald announced the discovery of a new aurora called STEVE (Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement). Liz has been studying the glitter of the Northern Lights for almost 25 years, and it never ceases to amaze her. In addition to doing citizen science and outreach Liz does some amazing high-tech space physics. She has also led teams that build instruments to measure charged particles in the space environment for NASA and DOE satellite and rocket missions.
