Video of this encounter: [2] An aurora (plural: auroras or aurorae),[a] sometimes referred to as polar lights, northern lights (aurora borealis), or southern lights (aurora australis), is a natural light display in the Earth's sky, predominantly seen in the high-latitude regions (around the Arctic and Antarctic). Auroras are the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by solar wind. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emit light of varying color and complexity. Etymology[edit] Occurrence[edit] A geomagnetic storm causes the auroral ovals (north and south) to expand, bringing the aurora to lower latitudes.

Meleager Ancient Greek mythical character In Greek mythology, Meleager (,[1] Greek: Μελέαγρος, translit. Meléagros) was a hero venerated in his temenos at Calydon in Aetolia. He was already famed as the host of the Calydonian boar hunt in the epic tradition that was reworked by Homer.[2] Meleager is also mentioned as one of the Argonauts. Biography[edit] Meleager was the father of Parthenopeus by Atalanta but he married Cleopatra, daughter of Idas and Marpessa.[7] They had a daughter, Polydora, who became the bride of Protesilaus, who left her bed on their wedding-night to join the expedition to Troy. Mythology[edit] Calydonian Boar Hunt[edit] When Meleager was born, the Moirai (the Fates) predicted he would only live until a piece of wood, burning in the family hearth, was consumed by fire. Meleager's uncles Toxeus, the "archer",[11] and Plexippus grew enraged that the prize was given to a woman. Afterlife[edit] Influences[edit] Family tree[edit] Gallery[edit] Volterra, Italy.

Daedalion Mythology[edit] Lover of gods[edit] Daedalion's daughter Chione was said to be so beautiful that she was the object of a thousand men's desire. As it transpired Chione's admirers were not limited to mortal men. Whilst returning from visits to earth both Apollo and Hermes caught sight of Chione and were filled with a burning lust. Death[edit] The attentions of not one but two gods led Chione to boast that her beauty exceeded even that of Artemis.

Tithonus In Greek mythology, Tithonus ( or ; Ancient Greek: Τιθωνός, romanized: Tithonos) was the lover of Eos, Goddess of the Dawn.[i] Tithonus was a prince of Troy, the son of King Laomedon by the Naiad Strymo (Στρυμώ).[ii] The mythology reflected by the fifth-century vase-painters of Athens envisaged Tithonus as a rhapsode, as attested by the lyre in his hand, on an oinochoe (wine jug) of the Achilles Painter, circa 470–460 BC. An asteroid (6998) has been named after Tithonus. Myth[edit] Eos is said to have taken Tithonus, from the royal house of Troy, to be her lover. The mytheme of the goddess' mortal lover is an archaic one; when a role for Zeus was inserted, a bitter twist appeared: according to the Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, when Eos asked Zeus to make Tithonus immortal, she forgot to ask that he be granted eternal youth. In later tellings, he eventually became a cicada (tettix),[4] eternally living, but begging for death to overcome him. Modern poems[edit] [edit] See also[edit] References[edit]
