    Solar Flares CME 08 March 2012 (Continuing)

    CME IMPACT: A coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth's magnetic field on March 8th around 1100 UT. The impact was weaker than expected, sparking only a mild (Kp=5) geomagnetic storm. However, the storm could intensify in the hours ahead depending on electromagnetic conditions in the wake of the CME.


    "We were in the tundra (Russia) waiting for the CME," says Cappelli. "The auroras were better than expected this time. This photo resembled green fire shooting up from the snow "



    Location:
    Aurora Sky Station, Abisko National Park, Sweden
    Details:
    Another great night in Abisko! The auroras have been unbelievable every night for an entire week! I have spent thousands of hours photographing the auroras and I can honestly say I have never seen anything like this. The full moon could not compete with the auroras tonight. All of our guests were treated to one of the finest displays of the season. Shot with a Nikon D7000, Tokina 11/16 2.8, ISO 1250, 4 second exposures.





    Responsible for the light show is Sunspot AR1429:

    HUGE SUNSPOT: Active sunspot AR1429 continues to grow. It is now more than seven times wider than Earth, which makes it an easy target for backyard solar telescopes. In fact, yesterday, David Tremblay of Alto, New Mexico, saw it using no telescope at all. All he needed was a dust storm:





    More to come:



    A solar wind stream flowing from this coronal hole could reach Earth as early as March 9-10.


    So keep your eyes open for some beautiful Northern Lights, they may come more south as well the next few days.

    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Hope you'll be able to see the aurora borealis, it's pretty nice.

    If these solar storms get really bad, we can get a collapse in the west.
