CANADIAN AURORA

ARCTIC LIGHTS: There was no geomagnetic storm last night, but around the Arctic Circle a geomagnetic storm is not required to produce auroras. Last night, photographer Mike Theiss was traveling along the Dempster Highway just north of Eagle Plains, Canada, when the sky erupted in color. The sign in the foreground marks the latitude of the Arctic Circle:

""It was insane," he says. "Lights danced all over the sky for 3 hours! I've never seen anything like it."

Theiss was located beneath Earth's auroral oval, a doughnut of light circling the North Pole where auroras sputter on and off even when geomagnetic storms are at low ebb. Displays like this could occur on any night of northern winter. Such auroras are all we can expect for the next few days as NOAA forecasters estimate a mere 5% chance of geomagnetic storms."

Thank you Breezy for keeping tabs on this and you are quite correct in stating that their is no need at all for a Geomagnetic Storm or Solar burst from the Sun for the Auroras North OR  South to be seen by the Human Eye.

To Everyone :

Read these threads and when you stumble upon the Wave Array see if you can come up with an interesting find

FANTASTIC AURORA/GEMINID OVER ICELAND

icyfireball_strip.jpg

David Clapp photographed this one streaking over the icy waters of Kirkjufell, Iceland:

"This was one amazing moment," says Clapp.

Note: Although the meteor appears to be flying mostly-above the auroras, it is more likely below. Geminid meteors burn up approximately 80 km above Earth's surface, while auroras stretch from 100 km to 500 km high.

Huge pillars of light appeared December 17, 2012 near the town of Palotina, Brazil

this sure seems strange to me...anyone??

Thanks Breezy, fantastic!!

If anyone can understand what the guys are saying, could you post if East is where the pillar is if they mention it please.

The only thing I've found that's close is a "zodiacal sky" or "false dawn", if it's not, then we could be looking at the first stages of interplanetary electrical connections reestablishing, FTE's (flux tube events etc).

There's a short vid I just received from thunderbolts today, (nice timing guys).

Another recently released vid from the thunderbolt crew, hope it hasn't been posted already.

Hey Breezy and Red, do we have a "Electric Universe" board/topic?, couldn't find it.

AURORA WATCH

kp0_strip.jpg

I loved this one, because of the house/snow in foreground too...how neat.

"With solar activity being so low lately, you wouldn't expect many auroras. Yet here in Inari, Finland," reports Andy Keen, "we've had some wonderfully clear skies and excellent displays." He photographed this scene on Jan. 5th." "The auroras became visible at approximately 16:00 hrs and lasted until midnight," he says.

CME IMPACT + MICROBIAL LIGHTS

'A coronal mass ejection hit Earth's magnetic field on Jan. 19th at approximately 17:15 UT. The weak impact did not trigger a full-fledged geomagnetic storm, but it did illuminate the Arctic Circle with auroras. Frank Olsen photographed the display from a beach in Sortland, Norway; scroll past his picture to learn about the glittering lights in the sand'

beach_strip.jpg

"The lights in the sand are bioluminescent dinoflagellates, a type of naturally glowing microbe. "To my surprise, I found these guys floating around on the beach tonight," says Olsen. "They looked great together with the auroras in the sky."

There is an interesting link between the auroras and the dinoflagellates. Both use oxygen to create their glow. In the case of the marine organism, a chemical pigment (luciferin) reacts with oxygen to create light. Meanwhile up in the sky, charged particles from the solar wind rain down on the atmosphere, colliding with oxygen molecules to create the telltale green hue of auroras."

As above so below???  how neat is this.....I wish I could have been there...

Study Provides New Evidence of Auroras Outside Solar System

Jan. 22, 2013

A study led by British planetary scientists has provided evidence that auroras occur on a number of very low mass stars and brown dwarfs, collectively termed ultracool dwarfs.

image_836.jpg

his artist’s conception illustrates a brown dwarf (NASA / JPL-Caltech)

"Auroras occur on Earth and some other planets within our Solar System, and the brightest – on Jupiter – are 100 times brighter than those on Earth. This phenomenon occurs when charged particles in an object’s magnetosphere collide with atoms in its upper atmosphere, causing them to glow. However, before hitting the atmosphere, these particles also emit radio waves into space.

"The new study, published in the Astrophysical Journal (arXiv.org version), suggests that processes strikingly similar to those which power Jupiter’s auroras could be responsible for radio emissions detected from a number of objects outside our Solar System.

The findings suggest the radio emissions from a number of ultracool dwarfs may be caused in a very similar, but significantly more powerful, way to Jupiter’s auroras."

"The study could have major implications for the detection of planets and objects outside our Solar System which could not be discovered with other methods."

Radio emissions=sound....correct?? space is anything but silent...but then didn't someone just discover that earth's auroras also emit sound?

Confirmed: Aurora borealis makes sounds  from July of 2012

Doug O'Hara

"The aurora really does make sounds — and they appear to be generated in the air about 230 feet above the ground, according to a Finnish study that used an array of microphones to record and pinpoint the source of a weird surging hiss during a magnetic storm last September."

Here is what space weather has to say; http://spaceweather.com/

AWASH IN JUPITER RADIO BURSTS: The planet Jupiter is a powerful source of shortwave radio bursts. They come from natural radio lasers in the giant planet's polar magnetosphere that sometimes sweep past Earth as Jupiter rotates. On Jan. 21st, as Jupiter and the Moon were converging for their Monday conjunction, a series of Jupiter's radio laser beams hit Earth. Amateur astronomer Thomas Ashcraft recorded the static-y sounds coming from the loudspeaker of his shortwave radio telescope in New Mexico:

"Sometimes when people are outside Jupiter-gazing they might also be awash in Jovian radio beam sweeps and not know it," says Ashcraft. "On Sunday, a Jovian radio storm produced a few minutes of strong radio waves. As I was outside my observatory looking up at Jupiter I was also hearing the waves on my radio telescope speakers and realized that my own body was, in that moment, being bathed in electromagnetic beams from Jupiter. What a nice feeling!"

Quite correct Breezy, and if we think in terms of Bullas

HetroDynamic Wave Array
it makes much more sense to us in terms of the stars and planets including earth singing and dancing around each other.

PS Thanks once again for keeping an eye out there.

Jupiter sounds (so strange!) NASA-Voyager recording

hryzunik

Uploaded on Jun 5, 2007

"From an original CD: JUPITER NASA-VOYAGER SPACE SOUNDS (1990) BRAIN/MIND Research

Fascinating recording of Jupiter sounds (electromagnetic "voices") by NASA-Voyager. The complex interactions of charged electromagnetic particles from the solar wind , planetary magnetosphere etc. create vibration "soundscapes". It sounds very interesting, even scary.

Jupiter is mostly composed of hydrogen and helium. The entire planet is made of gas, with no solid surface under the atmosphere. The pressures and temperatures deep in Jupiter are so high that gases form a gradual transition into liquids which are gradually compressed into a metallic "plasma" in which the molecules have been stripped of their outer electrons. The winds of Jupiter are a thousand metres per second relative to the rotating interior. Jupiter's magnetic field is four thousand times stronger than Earth's, and is tipped by 11° degrees of axis spin. This causes the magnetic field to wobble, which has a profound effect on trapped electronically charged particles. This plasma of charged particles is accelerated beyond the magnetosphere of Jupiter to speeds of tens of thousands of kilometres per second. It is these magnetic particle vibrations which generate some of the sound you hear on this recording."

well this definitely proves that space is not quiet....tx Reddwolf

NORTHERN LIGHTS:

"solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field on Jan. 26th, sparking auroras around the Arctic Circle. The moon was full at the same time, shining like a floodlight, but the auroras were bright enough to be seen anyway:

greenshower_strip.jpg

Matt Melnyk took the picture from a spot just outside Edmonton, Alberta. "The Moon was bright but it did not stop the aurora from showing!" he says. "The display started off dim then exploded into a vast array of green and purple."

NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on Jan. 27th. However, Earth is exiting the solar wind stream, and this will reduce the chances of more bright Northern Lights tonight. "

Aurora Borealis from Norway

"NORTHERN LIGHTS: As predicted, a solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field on Feb. 8th, sparking bright auroras around the Arctic Circle. "It was mindblowing," says Sindre Nedrevåg who watched the show from Bodø, Norway.:

mindblowing_strip.jpg

"

"Along with the Milky Way and a meteor we saw that lasted for three long seconds, the Northern Lights were just awesome," adds Nedrevåg. It was a good night to be outdoors.

Tonight could be another good night. NOAA forecasters estimate a 25% chance of polar geomagnetic storms as Earth's magnetosphere continues to reverberate from the solar wind impact.

NASA Successfully Launches Rocket to Study 'Northern Lights'

Rocket will help researchers understand the phenomena behind auroras

By Jason Koebler

February 7, 2013

FE_PR_130207aurora425x283.jpgSwirls of green and red appear in an aurora over Whitehorse, Yukon, on the night of Sep. 3, 2012. NASA's VISIONS sounding rocket will study what makes the aurora and how it affects Earth’s atmosphere.

"Thursday, NASA successfully launched a rocket designed to help researchers understand auroras, commonly known as the "Northern Lights."

The rocket called VISIONS flew to a height of more than 466 miles above earth (about the height of the International Space Station) in order to measure the escaping oxygen that's associated with auroras. The phenomenon is caused by the collision of highly-charged particles from space with earth's atmosphere and is usually only visible in Arctic or Antarctic regions. VISIONS was launched in Poker Flat, Alaska, about 30 miles north of Fairbanks.

[PHOTOS: Spectacular Snapshots of Space]

"Everything at first blush looks like it went well and we hit some auroras," says Doug Rowland, principal investigator of the mission. As designed, the rocket flew for about 15 minutes before crashing into the Arctic Ocean.

Auroras are a fairly regular occurrence in the Arctic circle, with one happening "every couple days," according to Rowland. But a strong solar flare or other magnetic storm can cause a more intense show that is visible in more southern areas."

I never knew that during an aurora, oxygen leaves the earth....interesting...

Spectacular Norway Northern Lights
