Polar: PIXIE at Perigee on May 11, 1999 (North)
On May 11, 1999, the solar wind that blows constantly from the Sun virtually disappeared. Dropping to a small fraction of its normal density and to half its normal speed, the solar wind died down enough to allow physicists to observe particles flowing directly from the Suns corona to Earth. This severe change in the solar wind also drastically changed the shape of Earths magnetic field and produced a rare auroral display at Earths North Pole.

Responses by Stomata on Leaves to Microenvironmental Conditions
Stomatal aperture provides much information about how leaves sense and respond to environmental conditions. Recent evidence suggests many species have nonuniform stomatal opening under both laboratory and field conditions, for example, different areas of the same leaf seem capable of responding independently to microenvironmental conditions. This exercise demonstrates how stomata respond to microenvironmental conditions by making casts of leaf surfaces and using them to evaluate stomatal opening
