Aurora #90

October 14, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday's "solar sector boundary crossing" caused the northern lights to ripple across the skies in Tananger just after midnight.  It was a short but very pretty display with the green colour and the structures clearly visible but not the pink.  It's not often we get to see the aurora dance this far south.  Spaceweather.com describes this special event as the Earth passing through a fold in the sun's heliospheric current sheet.
