a gentle auroral flow

10 August 2015

  At www.spaceweather.com August 11th .. it seems that for 4 days now the Earth has been inside a stream of fast moving solar wind. However, this has not sparked a geomagnetic storm or any kind of brilliant auroral phenomena. Instead, there has been what is described as a gentle glow of auroral light ringing the poles.

The images was taken by Ian Griffin in New Zealand, looking out over Otago Peninsular.
