If you wish to master aurora photography and learn from award winning photographers then check offer by Iceland Photo Tours at https://iceland-photo-tours.com/ On 25th February 2014 Sun produced X4.9 flare which on 27th February caused G2 (KP 6) geomagnetic storm on Earth. It was the brightest aurora display so far during this solar maximum which I could witness with auroral displays overhead in the far north of Scotland. This short movie illustrates what has been seen from latitude 58.3 degrees north.

What Causes The Northern Lights?
 
04:56
The aurora borealis or northern lights is one of the most spectacular natural displays on the planet. Theories about its origins have been debated for centuries and common misconceptions persist that the aurora is the sun's rays scattered off ice crystals in the high atmosphere. In truth, the light is created more than 100km above Earth's surface as high speed electrons and protons ejected from the sun in a solar flare or coronal mass ejection collide with air molecules in the upper atmosphere. The charged particles from the sun excite air molecules which then de-excite by emitting light. The display is most common around the north and south poles because the Earth's magnetic field deflects the solar wind from the equator to the poles. Here the magnetic field dips towards the Earth's surface, channeling the charged particles into the atmosphere. Music is by Kevin MacLeod http://incompetech.com, the song is called Mirage

The Best 4K Northern Lights / Aurora Borealis Video (HD)
 
03:08
The bright dancing lights of the aurora (Northern or Southern Lights) are collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun after entering Earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora Borealis' in the North and 'Aurora Australis' in the South. Color variations are due to the type of gas particles colliding. - Pale yellowish-green auroras are produced by oxygen molecules (60 miles above the earth) - Red auroras are produced by high-altitude oxygen, (heights of up to 200 mile) - Blue or purplish-red auroras are produced by nitrogen Original video By Visit North Iceland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaJ8jVUGZQ0&t=4s

What Causes the Northern Lights?
 
02:14
In our lives, many natural phenomena that occur on our planet Earth we see and hear about them, which brings good as rain, including what sometimes brings destruction and destruction, such as hurricanes, volcanoes, earthquakes and how these phenomena occur, this is what we want to explain in a simple and clear to add to our special cultural encyclopedia The aurora borealis (northern lights) form when charged particles emitted from the sun during a solar flare penetrate the earth's magnetic shield and collide with atoms and molecules in our atmosphere. These collisions result in countless little bursts of light, called photons, which make up the aurora. Collisions with oxygen produce red and green auroras, while nitrogen produces the pink and purple colors. This reaction encircles the polar regions of the earth and occurs at an altitude of 40-400 miles (65-650 km) in a zone called the "Auroral Oval." The aurora borealis most commonly occur between 60°-75° latitude, but during great geomagnetic storms the auroral oval expands equatorially and can reach 30° latitude or further. In the northern hemisphere they are called the aurora borealis (northern lights) and in the southern hemisphere aurora australis (southern lights). An auroral display might be observed any night from dusk until dawn as long as it is dark, which excludes Alaskan summer nights (May-July). The best time to view them is between midnight and 2 am.

The light becomes visible when the particles collide with gases in the Earth's atmosphere. This phenomenon can only be observed near the magnetic poles. The polar light in the northern hemisphere is called aurora borealis (northern lights) The aurora borealis (northern light) are visible in several countries, Northern Norway's easy accessibility and optimal conditions make it one of the best places on Earth to see them. The northern lights. COLOUR SPECTRUM OF THE AURORA BOREALIS (NORTHERN LIGHTS) Red: At the highest altitudes, excited atomic oxygen emits at 630.0 nm (red); low concentration of atoms and lower sensitivity of eyes at this wavelength make this color visible only under some circumstances with more intense solar activity. The low amount of oxygen atoms and their very gradually diminishing concentration is responsible for the faint, gradual appearance of the top parts of the "curtains". Green: At lower altitudes the more frequent collisions suppress this mode and the 557.7 nm emission (green) dominates; fairly high concentration of atomic oxygen and higher eye sensitivity in green make green auroras the most common. The excited molecular nitrogen (atomic nitrogen being rare due to high stability of the N2 molecule) plays its role here as well, as it can transfer energy by collision to an oxygen atom, which then radiates it away at the green wavelength. (Red and green can also mix together to pink or yellow hues.) The rapid decrease of concentration of atomic oxygen below about 100 km is responsible for the abrupt-looking end of the bottom parts of the curtains. Yellow and pink are a mix of red and green or blue. Blue: At yet lower altitudes atomic oxygen is not common anymore, and ionized molecular nitrogen takes over in visible light emission; it radiates at a large number of wavelengths in both red and blue parts of the spectrum, with 428 nm (blue) being dominant. Blue and purple emissions, typically at the bottoms of the "curtains", show up at the highest levels of solar activity.

Northern Lights UK: Is the breathtaking Aurora Borealis still visible TONIGHT?
 
04:14
A powerful solar storm erupting from the heart of the solar system triggered last night one of the most beautiful spectacles of nature.The Aurora Borealis as seen in the Northern Hemisphere, is a rare occurrence caused by the dance of electrically charged particles in the atmosphere. The interplay of plasma released above the magnetic north pole leads to various hues of green, blue, yellow, red and violet to paint the sky.Last night was the first time since November 2017 that Briton were given the chance to see the swirling lights in person, and it could be a long time before we witness them again. Related articles BBC News: Northern lights expected in British skies tonight Northern Lights UK tonight: Where can you see the Aurora Borealis? Will the Northern Lights be visible tonight?Unfortunately the latest Aurora outlook is not looking good for the UK and the rest of Europe.According to the hourly Aurora Service forecast, the Northern Lights are currently soaring above the northern reaches of Canada and Greenland.Locals living int he northernmost parts of Norway, Sweden and Finland might stand a minimal chance of seeing the lights as well.Geomagnetic activity tracked by a team of scientists at Lancaster University’s Department of Physics, indicates the lights peaked last night around 6pm. Activity has since been in the lower levels but has not completely dropped off.Nathan Case, a physicist and AuroraWatch UK volunteer, said the residents of northern Scotland stood a “family good chance” of seeing the lights on Thursday.Mr Case advised that the lights would be best seen between 9pm and midnight, and urged all skygazers to stay on the lookout for clear skies.BBC weatherman Matt Taylor also said that “cloud cover permitting”, the Aurora Borealis would appear to viewers in Northern Ireland and Scotland. What are the Northern Lights?The Aurora Borealis is the interplay of charged particles ejected from the sun being thrust into the atmosphere by solar winds.When the particles begin to interact with Earth’s natural magnetic field, they start to have an interesting effect on the gases we breath everyday. Mr Taylor explained: “The sun is of course not a solid object – fluctuations on that, solar flares off that, so that sends highly charged particles right through the atmosphere towards us. “As it reaches out atmosphere it interacts with the oxygen and nitrogen molecules, and that is what causes the colours.“It get’s them excited basically, causes a little bit of a tickle and they shine different colours of light – the greens and yellows when it’s oxygen and the reds and purples when it’s nitrogen.”But the phenomenon is not just limited to Earth and scientists have recorded Aurora effects on the distant world of Saturn.

Aurora .. The dancing lights
 
02:27
The Aurora is an incredible light show caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. The lights are seen around the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. Auroras that occur in the northern hemisphere are called ‘Aurora Borealis’ or ‘northern lights’ and auroras that occur in the southern hempishere are called ‘Aurora Australis’ or ‘southern lights’. Both Aurora’s can be seen in the northern or southern hemisphere, in an irregularly shaped oval centred over each magnetic pole. Scientists have learned that in most instances northern and southern auroras are mirror-like images that occur at the same time, with similar shapes and colours. Auroral displays can appear in many vivid colours, although green is the most common. Colours such as red, yellow, green, blue and violet are also seen occasionally. The auroras can appear in many forms, from small patches of light that appear out of nowhere to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an incredible glow.

Northern Lights Visit us!!! Think less, Live more. www.goodvibez.net Visit us!!! https://www.facebook.com/Good-Vibez-915613645162744/?ref=hl The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south.. Auroral displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink are the most common. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet have been reported. The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow. What causes the Northern Lights? The Northern Lights are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun's atmosphere. Variations in colour are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common auroral color, a pale yellowish-green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth. Rare, all-red auroras are produced by high-altitude oxygen, at heights of up to 200 miles. Nitrogen produces blue or purplish-red aurora. The connection between the Northern Lights and sunspot activity has been suspected since about 1880. Thanks to research conducted since the 1950's, we now know that electrons and protons from the sun are blown towards the earth on the 'solar wind'. (Note: 1957-58 was International Geophysical Year and the atmosphere was studied extensively with balloons, radar, rockets and satellites. Rocket research is still conducted by scientists at Poker Flats, a facility under the direction of the University of Alaska at Fairbanks - see web page http://www.gi.alaska.edu/ The temperature above the surface of the sun is millions of degrees Celsius. At this temperature, collisions between gas molecules are frequent and explosive. Free electrons and protons are thrown from the sun's atmosphere by the rotation of the sun and escape through holes in the magnetic field. Blown towards the earth by the solar wind, the charged particles are largely deflected by the earth's magnetic field. However, the earth's magnetic field is weaker at either pole and therefore some particles enter the earth's atmosphere and collide with gas particles. These collisions emit light that we perceive as the dancing lights of the north (and the south). The lights of the Aurora generally extend from 80 kilometres (50 miles) to as high as 640 kilometres (400 miles) above the earth's surface. Where is the best place to watch the Northern Lights? Northern Lights can be seen in the northern or southern hemisphere, in an irregularly shaped oval centred over each magnetic pole. The lights are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south. Scientists have learned that in most instances northern and southern auroras are mirror-like images that occur at the same time, with similar shapes and colors. Because the phenomena occurs near the magnetic poles, northern lights have been seen as far south as New Orleans in the western hemisphere, while similar locations in the east never experience the mysterious lights. However the best places to watch the lights (in North America) are in the northwestern parts of Canada, particularly the Yukon, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Alaska. Auroral displays can also be seen over the southern tip of Greenland and Iceland, the northern coast of Norway and over the coastal waters north of Siberia. Southern auroras are not often seen as they are concentrated in a ring around Antarctica and the southern Indian Ocean. Areas that are not subject to 'light pollution' are the best places to watch for the lights. Areas in the north, in smaller communities, tend to be best. When is the best time to watch for auroral displays? Researchers have also discovered that auroral activity is cyclic, peaking roughly every 11 years. The next peak period is 2013. Winter in the north is generally a good season to view lights. The long periods of darkness and the frequency of clear nights provide many good opportunities to watch the auroral displays. Usually the best time of night (on clear nights) to watch for auroral displays is local midnight (adjust for differences caused by daylight savings time). http://www.gi.alaska.edu/

http://www.undergroundworldnews.com A spectacular aurora australis, or southern lights — the southern hemisphere’s version of the northern lights — lit up the skies above New Zealand on Tuesday, as stargazers were treated to a dazzling bright-pink-and-green light show. Several local photographers managed to capture incredible images. One of them, Paul Le Comte, a 46-year-old from Dunedin, New Zealand, captured the scene above from the Otago Peninsula in Dunedin shortly after 2 a.m. local time. “The display was so massive that my widest angle lens couldn’t fit it all in,” Le Comte told Yahoo News. “[It looked like] the whole southern hemisphere was on fire.” http://news.yahoo.com/pink-aurora-southern-northern-lights-photo-new-zealand-152328218.html

Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)

Also known as the northern lights. Many ethnics such as Inuits ("Eskimo" is considered pejorative to Canadian Inuits) worship the northern lights to be their deceased ancestors dancing with their Goddesses. Also, auroras are also considered sacred to ancient Rome and was the name of the Roman Goddess of dawn. Aurora borealis, specifically, is could be seen in the sky of northern hemisphere (mostly on far-north or near the northern magnetic pole: Alaska, Quebec, Yukon, Greenland, Russia). Aurora australis, on the other hand, is visible only at the far-south, eg. Antartica, South America (Ushuaia, Punta Arenas probably), New Zealand.

Surprise solar storm set off gorgeous northern and southern lights Saturday night

Surprise solar storm set off gorgeous northern and southern lights Saturday night northern lights, southern lights, solar storm, aurora borealis, aurora australis, aurora, space weather, solar storm, geomagnetic storm, solar minimum, coronal mass ejection https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd4_4MPV20qVj80Rm_cQHOw?sub_confirmation=1 By Jason Samenow , Weather editor August 27 at 11:36 AM The solar wind sneaked through a “crack” in Earth’s magnetic field Saturday night, causing spectacular auroras in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Space weather forecasters were stunned by the spectacle. The colorful hues of the northern lights (aurora borealis) danced across the sky in Canada, Michigan, New York, Montana, Wisconsin and Indiana, SpaceWeather.com reported. It also logged reports of the southern lights (aurora australis) in New Zealand. In the video shown above, even the full moon can’t dull the vibrancy of the southern light’s turquoise, green and yellow shades frolicking above the coastline of Dunedin, New Zealand. In the Northern Hemisphere, the lights were  also seen in Europe and, according to Twitter, as far south as Colorado. “This is surely one for the record books! A #solar minimum #Sun sends #aurora as far south as Colorado!,” tweeted Tamitha Skov, a space weather expert. The geomagnetic storm was rated 3 or “strong” on the 1 to 5 scale for these events by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “Forecasters did not see this coming,” SpaceWeather.com wrote. A small wave of charged particles from the sun, known as a coronal mass ejection, first hit Earth on Friday but produced little effect. “The action began only after Earth entered the CME’s wake, where strong south-pointing magnetic fields opened a crack in our planet’s magnetosphere,” it explained. “This storm illustrates the critical importance of the magnetic field; the earth’s magnetic field is so sensitive to the strength and direction of the field coming from the Sun.Capital Weather Gang’s space weather expert,” added Joe Kunches, Capital Weather Gang’s space weather expert. The surprise storm was a reminder that the sun can unleash powerful outbursts even during the solar minimum, its current phase. “Solar Minimum or not, we have seen some seriously strong events in the last year,” tweeted Michael Cook, a space weather forecaster. “Think back to Sept 2017 when we had our strongest Solar Flares of the cycle and now this event.” Kunches called the event a “courtesy call” from the sun, “a reminder that activity can happen most any time.” [The sun is spotless and serene: What does it mean?] Below are views of the aurora, via Twitter: Incredible dancing #Auroraborealis in the #upperpeninsula of Michigan.

Northern Lights in Jerusalem by Aleksandra Stratimirović Northern Lights is a light-art piece inspired by the enthralling experience of the aurora borealis, the spectacular and poetic natural light phenomenon that occurs in the sky of the northern hemisphere. In May 2016, invited by the Jerusalem Light Festival, Northern Lights travelled to the Holy Land to dwell within the walls of the ancient Old City, just beside the Jaffa Gate and under the Tower of David. With the backdrop of the historical Jerusalem City Wall dating from the era of Suleyman the Magnificent the poetry of the Northern Lights attained a dreamlike interaction with the winds of the warm dark Jerusalem nights. The Jerusalem Light festival attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors during its seven days. Northern Lighs was realized in collaboration with Amsterdam Light Festival.

Northern Lights. The Best Meditation Technique Known.
 
01:02:35
WHAT ARE NORTHERN LIGHTS? The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south.. Auroral displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink are the most common. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet have been reported. The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow. WHAT CAUSES THE NORTHERN LIGHTS? The Northern Lights are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun's atmosphere. Variations in colour are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common auroral color, a pale yellowish-green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth. Rare, all-red auroras are produced by high-altitude oxygen, at heights of up to 200 miles. Nitrogen produces blue or purplish-red aurora. The connection between the Northern Lights and sunspot activity has been suspected since about 1880. Thanks to research conducted since the 1950's, we now know that electrons and protons from the sun are blown towards the earth on the 'solar wind'. (Note: 1957-58 was International Geophysical Year and the atmosphere was studied extensively with balloons, radar, rockets and satellites. Rocket research is still conducted by scientists at Poker Flats, a facility under the direction of the University of Alaska at Fairbanks - see web page http://www.gi.alaska.edu/ The temperature above the surface of the sun is millions of degrees Celsius. At this temperature, collisions between gas molecules are frequent and explosive. Free electrons and protons are thrown from the sun's atmosphere by the rotation of the sun and escape through holes in the magnetic field. Blown towards the earth by the solar wind, the charged particles are largely deflected by the earth's magnetic field. However, the earth's magnetic field is weaker at either pole and therefore some particles enter the earth's atmosphere and collide with gas particles. These collisions emit light that we perceive as the dancing lights of the north (and the south). The lights of the Aurora generally extend from 80 kilometres (50 miles) to as high as 640 kilometres (400 miles) above the earth's surface. WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE TO WATCH THE NORTHERN LIGHTS? Northern Lights can be seen in the northern or southern hemisphere, in an irregularly shaped oval centred over each magnetic pole. The lights are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south. Scientists have learned that in most instances northern and southern auroras are mirror-like images that occur at the same time, with similar shapes and colors. Because the phenomena occurs near the magnetic poles, northern lights have been seen as far south as New Orleans in the western hemisphere, while similar locations in the east never experience the mysterious lights. However the best places to watch the lights (in North America) are in the northwestern parts of Canada, particularly the Yukon, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Alaska. Auroral displays can also be seen over the southern tip of Greenland and Iceland, the northern coast of Norway and over the coastal waters north of Siberia. Southern auroras are not often seen as they are concentrated in a ring around Antarctica and the southern Indian Ocean. Areas that are not subject to 'light pollution' are the best places to watch for the lights. Areas in the north, in smaller communities, tend to be best. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO WATCH FOR AURORAL DISPLAYS? Researchers have also discovered that auroral activity is cyclic, peaking roughly every 11 years. The next peak period is 2013. Winter in the north is generally a good season to view lights. The long periods of darkness and the frequency of clear nights provide many good opportunities to watch the auroral displays. Usually the best time of night (on clear nights) to watch for auroral displays is local midnight (adjust for differences caused by daylight savings time). http://www.gi.alaska.edu/ LEGENDS OF THE LIGHTS 'Aurora borealis', the lights of the northern hemisphere, means 'dawn of the north'. 'Aurora australis' means 'dawn of the south'. In Roman myths, Aurora was the goddess of the dawn. \par Many cultural groups have legends about the lights. In medieval times, the occurrences of auroral displays were seen as harbingers of war or famine. The Maori of New Zealand shared a belief with many northern people of Europe and North America that the lights were reflections from torches or campfires.https://www.northernlightscentre.ca/northernlights.html

The light becomes visible when the particles collide with gases in the Earth's atmosphere. This phenomenon can only be observed near the magnetic poles. The polar light in the northern hemisphere is called aurora borealis (northern lights) The aurora borealis (northern light) are visible in several countries, Northern Norway's easy accessibility and optimal conditions make it one of the best places on Earth to see them. The northern lights. COLOUR SPECTRUM OF THE AURORA BOREALIS (NORTHERN LIGHTS) Red: At the highest altitudes, excited atomic oxygen emits at 630.0 nm (red); low concentration of atoms and lower sensitivity of eyes at this wavelength make this color visible only under some circumstances with more intense solar activity. The low amount of oxygen atoms and their very gradually diminishing concentration is responsible for the faint, gradual appearance of the top parts of the "curtains". Green: At lower altitudes the more frequent collisions suppress this mode and the 557.7 nm emission (green) dominates; fairly high concentration of atomic oxygen and higher eye sensitivity in green make green auroras the most common. The excited molecular nitrogen (atomic nitrogen being rare due to high stability of the N2 molecule) plays its role here as well, as it can transfer energy by collision to an oxygen atom, which then radiates it away at the green wavelength. (Red and green can also mix together to pink or yellow hues.) The rapid decrease of concentration of atomic oxygen below about 100 km is responsible for the abrupt-looking end of the bottom parts of the curtains. Yellow and pink are a mix of red and green or blue. Blue: At yet lower altitudes atomic oxygen is not common anymore, and ionized molecular nitrogen takes over in visible light emission; it radiates at a large number of wavelengths in both red and blue parts of the spectrum, with 428 nm (blue) being dominant. Blue and purple emissions, typically at the bottoms of the "curtains", show up at the highest levels of solar activity ABOUT US We are a film and multimedia Company located in the Lofoten Islands -In the northern part of Norway.

Aurora (Northern Lights) Part III

I want to thank all Youtubers for the positive feedback to the first northern lights video in this series. It has been favorited more than 9000 times so far. Many ask me about the techniques: I developed a ultra light sensitive color webcam that hourly generates time lapse movies. At the moment we have five cameras of this type running in different countries. This is another movie from the camera in British Columbia, Canada. It was taken on Jun/28/2006 and shows northern lights in a summer night. There are some bright clouds near the horizon on the left. These are noctilucent clouds. Noctilucent clouds are the highest clouds in the Earth's atmosphere, located in the mesosphere at altitudes of around 82 km (50 miles), and are visible only when illuminated by sunlight from below the horizon while the ground and lower layers of the atmosphere are in the Earth's shadow; otherwise they are too faint to be seen. Noctilucent clouds are not fully understood by science today. Look for this kind of clouds in a summer night. You may spot them near the northern horizon when you live in the northern hemisphere in a latitude between 50 and 60 degrees.

AMAZING LIGHT SHOW - AURORAS!
 
02:05
How do auroras (Polar lights) seen at the North and South Pole regions form? How are the colorful lights of auroras determined? What is the reason that auroras can only be formed at the Polar Regions? What is the effect of this wonderful sky phenomena over our lives? One of the most magnificent sky phenomena, which Almighty ALLAH created, are "Polar Lights" which are natural light images we can see in the sky. Polar lights, or by their scientific name "Auroras", are one of the manifestations of Allah's name "SANI" (artist). Polar lights are a night luminescence which could be seen in the Northern and Southern Polar regions. Auroras are one of the most visible effects of the sun towards the Earth. The auroras, which can be clearly seen at night have two names, the one seen in the Northern hemisphere is called "Aurora Borealis". The one seen in the Southern hemisphere is called "Aurora Australis". These lights can be seen mostly in September and April. Auroras fluctuate from east to west. When you look at them from the Earth, they appear in shapes of a bow and lines. It is only possible to see the full circle shape of the whole aurora from space. How are auroras formed? In the formation of this amazing natural light show, atoms which are very small and invisible to the naked eye also do not have any mind and consciousness, undertake a very important role. Auroras emerge as a result of the interaction of charged particles scattered from the sun with the Earth's magnetic field. The sun produces energy particles (ions) which radiate rapidly with a speed of approximately 300 to 1200 kilometers per second. The clouds are formed from the joining of these energy particles called plasma. The plasma stream, coming from the sun, is called solar wind. Some particles are trapped by the interaction of Earth's magnetic field and the solar winds emerging from the sun with a speed of approximately 1 million miles per hour after they enter the magnetosphere. These particles follow the magnetic lines of force leading down from the outer zones of the atmosphere to the ionosphere. When the electrons enter the upper layers of the atmosphere they face oxygen and nitrogen atoms, approximately 20 to 200 miles above the Earth's crust. In this way, atoms which earn electrons supported by high energy become loaded with an energy well above their capacity. Under normal conditions, when an atom or a molecule is loaded with this kind of high level of energy, they lose it by hitting other atoms rapidly. However, at altitudes between 80 and 150 km where molecular density is a few atoms per cubic centimeters, it is very unlikely for an atom to coincide with another atom to transfer its energy. Another way to lose this energy, which is formed as a result of this interaction, is through absorption of the light. In this way, atoms absorb the extra energy and spread this energy as light into the sky. The spreading of energy as light leads to the emergence of the colorful natural light shows seen in the sky.

With great pleasure I'm inviting you to a very special "Light Show", to one of nature's greatest spectacles accompanied by the fascinating atmospherical music composed and performed by MunDoSow, "Light" is out of her album "New Earth", an album of introspective electronic music. MunDoSow, a longtime resident of Paris, France, is a self taught musician and composer. "New Earth" is her latest solo project. For more information please visit MunDoSow's site at: http://www.mundosow.com. My sincere appreciation and very special thank you to MunDoSow for the permission to use her music. I very much enjoyed doing this video to this quite challenging music. Northern and Southern (polar) lights or Aurorae: In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the Aurora Borealis, named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas, by Pierre Gassendi in 1621. The aurora borealis is also called the northern polar lights, as it is only visible in the sky from the Northern Hemisphere, the chance of visibility increasing with proximity to the North Magnetic Pole, which is currently in the arctic islands of northern Canada. Auroras seen near the magnetic pole may be high overhead, but from further away, they illuminate the northern horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the sun were rising from an unusual direction. The aurora borealis most often occurs near the equinoxes; from September to October and from March to April. The northern lights have had a number of names throughout history. The Cree people call this phenomenon the "Dance of the Spirits." In the middle age the auroras has been called by sign of God. Auroras can be spotted throughout the world. It is most visible closer to the poles due to the longer periods of darkness and the magnetic field. Its southern counterpart, the Aurora Australis or the southern polar lights, has similar properties, but is only visible from high southern latitudes in Antarctica, South America, or Australasia. Australis is the Latin word for "of the South." Aurora Borealis typically occur in the ionosphere. Auroras are the result of the emissions of photons in the Earth's upper atmosphere, above 80 km (50 miles), from ionized nitrogen atoms regaining an electron, and oxygen and nitrogen atoms returning from an excited state to ground state. They are ionized or excited by the collision of solar wind particles being funneled down and accelerated along the Earth's magnetic field lines; excitation energy is lost by the emission of a photon of light, or by collision with another atom or molecule: oxygen emissions: Green or brownish-red, depending on the amount of energy absorbed. nitrogen emissions: Blue or red. Blue if the atom regains an electron after it has been ionized. Red if returning to ground state from an excited state. Auroras are associated with the solar wind, a flow of ions continuously flowing outward from the sun. The Earth's magnetic field traps these particles, many of which travel toward the poles where they are accelerated toward earth. Collisions between these ions and atmospheric atoms and molecules causes energy releases in the form of auroras appearing in large circles around the poles. Auroras are more frequent and brighter during the intense phase of the solar cycle when coronal mass ejections increase the intensity of the solar wind.

Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/laurentcousineauwebsite (Please like and share!) Please visit my website: http://www.climate-change-guide.com Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) is a spectacular phenomenon that occurs in nature. The aurora borealis is also called the northern polar lights, as it is only visible in the sky from the Northern Hemisphere, the chance of visibility increasing with proximity to the North Magnetic Pole, which is currently in the arctic islands of northern Canada. It occurs often in Scandinavia as well. In addition, it is possible to see it during the day (it happens at all times but it is harder to see) and in different areas of the world. In fact, some rare occurances of the aurora borealis have mistaken people to take them for UFOs. The Aurora Borealis forms at around 60 miles high (around 100 km) which makes the lights visible hundreds of kilometers away. The cause for this phenomenon is electrons hitting air particles, causing them to light up. The colour depends on the altitude: Green - oxygen, up to 150 miles in altitude Red - oxygen, above 150 miles in altitude Blue - nitrogen, up to 60 miles in altitude Purple/violet - nitrogen, above 60 miles in altitude There is also the existence of the aurora australis (or the southern lights) which has almost identical features to the aurora borealis and is visible from high southern latitudes in Antarctica, South America and Australia. The soundtrack is a classical version of Clocks (Made Famous by Coldplay) from Jurgen Johannes & The Orchestral Academy of Los Angeles This video was made by Laurent Cousineau and can be viewed in 720p and 1080p (HD).

Ireland who had been threatening to make a place in the top flight rankings its own, crashed out to number 6, one place below Wales, and, in ranking points, well behind any of the top tier nations. New Zealand is now so far ahead of all the Northern Hemisphere teams that it is no longer in a position to gain any increase in its rankings points from beating them, except from Wales who remain by a hairsbreadth within the 10 ranking point requirement for a points exchange to take place in the event of the advantaged team winning. Wales, the top ranked Northern Hemisphere side at position 5, are 9.4 points below New Zealand. Back-to-back Six Nations champions Ireland is now ranked below each of the 4 Rugby Championship sides. That is a powerful statement from the Southern Hemisphere.

When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 30 frames per second; the result is an apparent 30 times speed increase. Time-lapse photography can be considered the opposite of high speed photography or slow motion. Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, e.g. the motion of the sun and stars in the sky, become very pronounced. Time-lapse is the extreme version of the cinematography technique of undercranking, and can be confused with stop motion animation. Legends of the Lights 'Aurora borealis', the lights of the northern hemisphere, means 'dawn of the north'. 'Aurora australis' means 'dawn of the south'. In Roman myths, Aurora was the goddess of the dawn. \par Many cultural groups have legends about the lights.

The Maori of New Zealand shared a belief with many northern people of Europe and North America that the lights were reflections from torches or campfires.

The Inuit of Alaska believed that the lights were the spirits of the animals they hunted: the seals, salmon, deer and beluga whales. Other aboriginal peoples believed that the lights were the spirits of their people.

Manmade shows create aurora ANYWHERE
 
03:51
Forget the Northern Lights, we could create aurora ANYWHERE: Particle accelerator could one day make manmade shows in our atmosphere Scientists in California described how to create artificial auroras on Earth They said a particle accelerator could be sent 185 miles up into space It would then fire high-energy beams back at Earth's atmosphere This would create auroras to study - and even types of lightning. When high-energy electrons and ions from the sun hit Earth’s upper atmosphere, they can excite atoms and create fantastic colours - which we see on the ground as auroras. And now a study has claimed that we could create our own auroras, by firing a particle accelerator into the sky from space. The intriguing research says that a beam fired from the machine would create artificial auroras – and it could even create lightning in the atmosphere. The accelerator would be located in space, 185 miles (300km) above the ground, and would fire back towards Earth's atmosphere. WHAT IS AN AURORA? There are two types of auroras on Earth - the Aurora Borealis in the Northern Hemisphere, known as the Northern Lights, and the Aurora Australis in the Southern Hemisphere, known as the Southern Lights. Auroras occur when highly charged electrons from the solar wind collide with atoms of oxygen and nitrogen in the earth's atmosphere at altitudes from 20 to 200 miles (32 to 320km) above the planet’s surface. The interactions between the charged particles give off light. Auroral displays appear in many colours: red, yellow, green, blue, and violet. The color of the aurora depends on which atom is struck, and the altitude of the meeting. The common green hue is caused by colliding oxygen molecules at altitudes of up to 150 miles (240km). It would be based on a instrument called the Compact Particle Accelerator for Space Science (Compass), which is being developed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and SRI International, both in California. ‘The authors say that employing such instrumentation would offer many scientific opportunities to study the behaviour of particles in the upper atmosphere,’ wrote Mr Zastrow. ‘The paths of the electrons would trace out the arcing field lines of Earth’s magnetic field, illustrating how they bend and snap during the intense geomagnetic activity caused by solar storms. ‘As they descend into the Earth’s atmosphere, some of the electrons would strike atmospheric molecules, producing visible aurora-like emission.’

ध्रुवीय ज्योती का रहस्य।What is Polar Light |Polar Light|All About Aurora Borealis & AuroraAustralis
 
03:12
An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar light or northern light, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions.[a] Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere), where their energy is lost. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits light of varying colour and complexity. The form of the aurora, occurring within bands around both polar regions, is also dependent on the amount of acceleration imparted to the precipitating particles. Precipitating protons generally produce optical emissions as incident hydrogen atoms after gaining electrons from the atmosphere. Proton auroras are usually observed at lower latitudes Auroras (aurora borealis in the northern hemisphere, and aurora australis in the southern hemisphere) are beautiful, mysterious light displays in the sky that are caused by solar wind from the sun interacting with the earth's magnetosphere. Many different myths and legends have been associated with the aurora over the years. Come and learn about them in this fun and educational video!

If you could stand on the surface of Mars and look up at the skies, what would you see?  An international team of scientists predicts an array of blue aurorae bright enough to be seen with the naked eye.  The phenomenon is similar to Earth's northern lights.  According to NASA, "Aurorae occur when charged solar particles reach local magnetic field lines, where they enter the planetary atmosphere and excite its atoms and molecules. As they deactivate, the particles produce light emission."  Study results show the strongest color is deep blue, but green and red may also be observed.  NASA explains that until approximately 3.5 billion years ago, Mars hosted a ‘global magnetic field’.  Now only local spots of increased magnetic fields remain. The Martian aurorae are believed to occur in the southern hemisphere where these anomalies are primarily located.   NASA anticipates sending astronauts to the red planet in the 2030s and hopefully they will witness if the blue aurorae is indeed visible from the surface.

A storm on the surface of the sun known as a "coronal mass ejection" pushed billions of tons of superheated gas into the solar system, which is now appearing over some parts of the northern hemisphere in the form of aurora borealis. The Telegraph reports: "Dramatic auroras were seen in Denmark, Norway, Greenland, Germany and across the northern United States and Canada" Tuesday night. Watch in HD! 2900+ still images taken with Nikon D40 through a Sigma 10-20mm f4 lens and nikon 35mm f1.8. I used Camera control pro for some clips, but most of them were taken only using the Nikon ML-L3 remote since D40 doesn't have a built in intervalometer. One clip is taken in Bergen, Norway, the remaining clips are taken in Levanger, Norway. Some aircraft navigation lights and even a few meteors are captured in this timelapse. The star trails effect was created using photoshop and a star trails action which can be found here: http://timelapseblog.com/2010/03/29/star-trails-photoshop-action/, and downloaded from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?zyxiljnvoc0. Thanks to Owen Scharlotte! Camera: Nikon D40. The soundtrack is Mika: Fall to pieces -Silence, it can be found here: http://ccmixter.org/files/mika/24945
