Researchers Find a Connection Between the Northern Lights and Whales Beaching Themselves – Daily Grail

As if the world’s whales don’t have enough to contend with, it seems they get thrown off course when the Aurora Borealis flares up and causes them to head for the beach, according to Dr. Klaus Vanselow. NASA is also on the case and is due to publish its findings on how “a whole range of cetaceans” experience similar problems. Mythical mammals feature in Mermaid Monday: Mermaids at Mombassa, where an item from 1825 tells us that mermaid teeth are “the best of ivory,” apparently being large enough to make sword handles. Not sure that many sailors would be lured by such charms, but after months at sea, who knows? (LP)
