Active aurora band - 2.1.2022 at 23.15 Sodankylä Observation number 103503

Visibility III / V


While I was photographing the northern lights in Sodankylä's Sattanen, a swirling northern lights emerged from the northeastern shore of the sky, which quickly grew into a long segment with several individual spherical parts. The phenomenon did not last long and it disintegrated into a wider stream. The phenomenon also showed a red eye on the edges with the naked eye.

I haven’t seen a similar northern lights before.

Onpas tyylikkäät "jaokkeet"! On kyllä jännän säännöllisesti poimuttunut vyö. Hieno!

Hieno spiraaliketju.

"Jaokkeisuuden" vaikutelma varmaan syntyy poimuttuneesta vyöstä ja sopivasta havaintogeometriasta (eli katselu/kuvaussuunnasta).  Poimut ovat kyllä varsin säännöllisin välein.

Donnan havainnossa https://www.taivaanvahti.fi/observations/show/103430 on myös tunnistettavissa jaksollisuutta. Näyttää ihan kokoaaltotasasuuntaukselta oskilloskoopin kuvaputkella.
