I'm asking this question to anyone who reads this. Could this solar flare manifest itself in a sort of atmospheric display? I am pretty sure I saw some sort of atmospheric display last night in the northern sky that lasted roughly 20 minutes and had that characteristic bluish green transparent look. Except it started as an extremely small circle and then bloomed out maintaining a perfectly circular shape. If anyone can help explain this or offer comments as to whether this solar flare could have been responsible. Thanks.
