Space weather around Earth is stormy today, Feb. 20, 2014. Our planet’s magnetic field is reverberating from the second CME impact in as many days. These CME impacts have been minor and/or glancing. However, their combined effect is significant. A G1-class geomagnetic storm is in progress.
This aurora image was taken by Ole Salomonsen on February 20, 2014 who said ” As expected from the spaceweather forecast, the sky exploded tonight over northern Norway!”
He took this photo of the aurora behind a nearby reindeer by laying on the frozen ground.
