Between the Earth and Space there is something we have called the “Cosmic Shore” – a boundary way above Earth, which is the birthplace of auroras and shooting stars. We focus on “sprites,” mysterious lights that once only astronauts and pilots had ever seen. Even our weather is affected by the electricity carried onto the Cosmic Shore.
