Now that Autumn is with us once again and the midnight summer is gone, the Auroras are back.

SOLAR WIND SPARKS AURORAS: A fast-moving stream of solar wind is buffeting Earth's magnetic field. In response, auroras are dancing around the Arctic Circle. "The magnetic storm hit us as expected [on Sept.20th]!" reports Rayann Elzein from the UNESCO Ilulissat Icefjord World Heritage site in Greenland. "We had such an amazing show!"

Here is yet another spectacular red aurora that is also known as "Hem of His Garment"

SURFING THE HELIOSPHERIC CURRENT SHEET: Yesterday, Oct. 10th, Earth passed through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet. The crossing sparked bright auroras around the Arctic Circle. "The lights were fantastic," reports Helge Mortensen, who photographed the display over Kattfjordvannet, Norway:

Many people have never heard of the heliospheric current sheet. It is one of the biggest things in the solar system--a vast undulating system of electrical currents shaped like the skirt of a ballerina: picture. Earth dips in and out of it all the time.

What color ! Electric green and purple and vibrant blue ! This is one of the most spectacular pictures yet. So artistically arranged, too, with the reflection in the water.

We are fortunate to be able to view all these great phenomena of nature right here on E.Cafe, without having to search out the images ourselves. These are very restful to the eyes and soul. Thanks, Maria !

AURORAS AND COMET DUST: On October 23rd, Nina Rajani witnessed a display of bright auroras over Tromso, Norway ... and it was sprinkled with comet dust.


Ah, a little pixie dust ...

Another beautiful aurora with tinges of purple (red spectrum). This one is from Alaska:
This type of aurora is also called Hem of His Garment.

GEOMAGNETIC STORM UNDERWAY: A moderate G2-class geomagnetic storm is underway as Earth enters a stream of solar wind flowing from a coronal hole on the sun. First contact with the stream produced a magnificant outburst of auroras over Alaska during the early hours of Oct. 25th. Marketa S. Murray sends this picture from Fairbanks AK:
