      03/08/2012: One result of recent solar flares: One of the strongest solar storms for many years hits Earth's magnetic field. Spectacular Northern Lights have been seen In the north of Scandinavia - the photo here is near Faskrudsfjordur, on the east coast of Iceland.

      Solar flares on the sun, the result of a normal process of the surface of the fiery star, caused the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) to be intensified. Incredible colors were seen in some areas, such as those illustrated in the photo to the right. This photo was taken in Iceland

      BUCKET LIST "03/08/2012: One result of recent solar flares: One of the strongest solar storms for many years straight hits Earth's magnetic field. In the north of Scandinavia have been seen in its spectacular Northern Lights series - recording here the sky is near the Faskus fjord on the east coast of Iceland."

    STEREO consists of two space-based observatories - one ahead of Earth in its orbit, the other trailing behind. With this new pair of viewpoints, scientists will be able to see the structure and evolution of solar storms as they blast from the Sun and move out through space.

    Sounding Off Photograph by Lee Wingfield, NASA via AP To better understand how solar storms might interfere with GPS systems, Lessard and his colleagues launched a sounding rocket into the aurora borealis from the University of Alaska's Poker Flat Research Range near Fairbanks on February 18. Sounding rockets are small but powerful suborbital rockets that borrow their name from the marine term "to sound," which means to take measurements.

    fom APOD: One of the most active sunspot groups in years is currently crossing the Sun. AR 1302 first came around the Sun's edge last week and is so large it can be seen without a telescope. Coronal Mass Ejections from AR 1302 have already caused strong geomagnetic storms including notable aurora activity around both of Earth's poles. Pictured above, plasma was left magnetically hanging above the Sun's surface after AR 1302 emitted an X-class solar flare last Thursday. Earth is illustrated i...

    Solar flares can have a drastic effect upon Aurora displays (NASA Image Database). While the energy produced by the sun is fairly regular, occasional solar flares can create massive geomagnetic storms. The largest solar flare in recorded history occurred in 1859 and was known as “The Carrington Event.” On September 2nd of that year, spectacular Aurora displays could be seen from places as far south as Hawaii. That sure expanded the definition of “northern” lights!
