Earth's Magnetic Field and How it Effects a Compass

Earth's magnetic field is almost like a force field itself. There are many different theories about were these invisible lines start. Some say inner core some say outer. These lines protect us from charge particles that come from the sun. Say these particles were to get to earth by riding a magnetic field line in. If this was to happen you would be able to see what's called an Aurora, you have to be at a certain location to see it though. There is a south pole and north pole. It's not what your probably thinking of, it's not like Santa's layer or anything. The compass pull to each different pole.

Turn the compass to the direction you need to go and line it up with the big N, S, E, and W, whichever you need. Maybe NE or NW who knows? Only you I guess. Find out how exactly in the video below.
