      An aurora borealis appears to touch down on an illuminated bridge in Sommarøya in northern Norway on September 8. In addition to the September 11 coronal mass ejection (CME)—a giant bubble of charged solar particles—multiple bursts of solar magnetic activity shot CMEs toward Earth in the first few days of September. The Solar Dynamics Observatory caught sight of the initial explosive flare emanating from a giant group of sunspots. The flare sent a CME racing toward Earth at 250 miles (400 kilometers) per second. When the particles smacked Earth's magnetic field on the eighth, auroral sparks flew.

      International Fair: Aurora Borealis in Ersfjord, Norway. During the Northern Hemisphere's autumn and spring, solar magnetic fields are oriented in just the right way to cause "rips" in Earth's magnetic field. The resulting increase in solar wind on Earth encourages auroral sky shows but can also damage satellite technology and electrical grids on the ground. (National Geographic)
