Dragon Aurora over Norway
Image Credit & Copyright: Marco BastoniExplanation:
What’s that in the sky? An aurora. A large coronal hole
opened last month, a few days before this image was taken, throwing a cloud of fast moving electrons
, and ions
toward the Earth
. Some of this cloud impacted our Earth’s magnetosphere
and resulted in spectacular auroras
being seen at high northern latitudes. Featured here is a particularly photogenic auroral curtain
captured above Tromsø Norway
. To the astrophotographer, this shimmering green glow
of recombining atmospheric oxygen
appeared as a large dragon
, but feel free to share
what it looks like
to you. Although now past Solar Maximum
, our Sun
continues to show occasional activity
creating impressive auroras
on Earth visible even last week
Tomorrow’s picture: far star
