Bill Nye The Science Guy on Magnetism

This mini-episode is really more about magnetic fields than the phenomenon of magnetism. Computer graphics help Bill explain how charged particles from solar wind create the awesome Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis. Mr. Nye also discusses the magnetic fields of other planets. The best use of this lesson would be in a middle school atmosphere, Earth, or solar system unit.
