    • Flaming auroras info

      Flaming. This rare subclass of aurora does not mean so much a single shape, but a large area in the sky. In the flaming aurora, bright waves that are sweeping upward towards the magnetic zenith emerge in the sky. Very rarely waves can wipe downwards. Bands are usually reported during flaming, less often spots.

    • Green auroras info

      Green, seen with the naked eye, is one the most common colors of the aurora. The green color is derived from atomic oxygen.

Onpas ollutkin hieno näytös. Eilinen ilta menikin omalta osaltani päivystyshommissa, joten nämä jäi kokematta

Komea on ollut näytös ja komealtahan tuo näytti myös Auroras:now.n Sodankylän reposkameran kuvassa. Upeat animaatiot olet saanut aikaiseksi ja upeat on kuvatkin ! Kyllä näitä täällä etelässä kelpaa katsella.

Kiitos Kari. Ja tänä iltanakin taivas jonkin verran loimuilee. Kamera raksuttelee täällä kuunvalossa, se tuo oman tunnelmansa.

Hienot animaatiot. Komeaa jälkeä.
