Caught Steve. With a chance for the northern lights, I went to Torö by Nynäshamn to catch the northern lights. At one point, I got a cool glow in the picture. I was later told it was Steve.

      STEVE (Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement), Pink, radial aurora-like arc  . The STEVE arc is seen clearly separated from the main aurora arc of the northern sky. It forms a long and narrow west-east aligned, usually dim form. It does not belong to traditional auroras as a phenomenon, but may appear same time with them. Occasionally there may also be a green, "toothed" band called ”picket fence” at the bottom of Steve.

Va?! 7.10.2018 Var en rekordkväll för norrsken med SAR och dyner. Viste inte att också STEVE dök upp då. Häftigt!

Jag är inte ute så ofta och jagar grönt (bor mitt i Stockholm = massa ljus). Jörgen Tannerstedt och jag synkade tider i efterhand att vi hade samma lycka med Steve den kvällen. Det var lite häftigt.

Jag har kompletterat med bilder på min observation från samma kväll och tid.
