Aurora Borealis as a result of the solar flare. Norway January 23rd. #Norway #NorthernLights
Bucket list: witness an aurora ~ The Earth’s magnetic field directs the torrent of charged particles from solar storms toward the poles which create color when they interact with the atmosphere.
Northern Lights as seen from Norway. The large solar storm that hit the Earth yesterday was expected to interfere with cell phone calls and GPS transmissions. But the storm was also a boon for photographers--who captured the Northern Lights in full effect. The aurora borealis is a natural light display typically only visible from parts of Norway but this week's massive solar storm moved the lights south, allowing photographers across northeast England and Ireland to capture powerful images. Ken Kennedy, director of the Aurora section of the British Astronomical Association, told the Daily Mail that the lights may be visible for a few more days.

A fantastic display of Aurora Borealis from the last trip of the Aurora season back in March. Its far too light now to see even the strongest aurora anywhere in the Arctic Circle.
