    • And then last week another big storm that caused auroras and beautiful geo magnetic activity all over the world.
    • As it is, auroras on Earth follow magnetic lines of force that converge at the north and south magnetic poles.
    • Bound to the Earth, our only naturally occurring experience with space weather comes from what we can see with our eyes: eclipses, comets, auroras, and sunspots.
    • Experts used to think it was just a matter of the air being heated by particles and electric currents in the regions around the poles, where auroras occur.
    • This causes the phenomenon called the northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis.
    • Colorful sky lights called auroras may be active at high latitudes and possibly into northern U.S. states and Europe.
    • In the southern hemisphere, sky watchers saw the aurora australis over New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa.
    • Although the solar wind produces beautiful auroras, it can also cause a variety of undesirable consequences.
    • Gaps in the magnetosphere also allow for one of Earth's most beautiful, eerie phenomena: the aurora borealis, or northern lights.
    • Birkeland's experiments failed to account for one of the most important traits of auroras: they are common around the polar regions but exceedingly rare at the poles themselves.
    • He expanded on their work by pulling in historical records of auroras, naked-eye sunspots, and eclipses.
    • The Hubble Space Telescope has spotted auroras near the poles of both Saturn and Jupiter.
    • The eventual physical effects of the storm were minimal - auroras were visible in Boston and other northern U.S. cities, but no satellites or power grids had major failures.
    • A typical example of how both missions will co-operate is the study of the magnetic substorms producing the bright aurorae.
