On June 5, 2014, a giant filament erupted on the Sun. It released a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) which left the Sun at 1.2 million mph (512 km/s). Although majority of plasma cloud was directed away from Earth we were still hit by a small part, a glancing blow.The i
This short time-lapse was captured on February 19, 2014. At approximately 02:00 UTC an unexpected CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) impacted our planet's magnetosphere. The aurora display was fairly active peaking at G2 storm levels.
A large portion of the display
Found a little bit of Aurora on Februaty 8/9, 2014. There was a very subdued show. Conditions on Friday were blowing snow, -22 deg C with a 15 km/h wind from the north. I thought that was pretty cold until I headed out again on Saturday night when it was crystal clear
This time-lapse was captured on the morning of November 11, 2013. It is suspected that two CMEs (Coronal Mass Ejections) on November 8th and 10th from two separate X-class solar flares combined to form one cloud of plasma. The interaction of this energy with
This amazing timelapse by talented Zoltan Kenwell – InFocus Imagery – was captured in the morning of November 24, 2012, about 30 km east of Bashaw, Alberta, Canada.
"The forecast was looking very promising for a fantastic display. A more or
On July 14, 2013, the Sun unleashed a major X1.4 solar flare which was accompanied with a CME (Coronal Mass Ejection). InFocusImagery brings us this amazing time-lapse video.

And here is another amazing time-lapse video of auroras by Zoltan Kenwell. On April 23/24, 2012 Earth experienced a G3 geomagnetic storm. The Kp index, a measure of magnetic field, peaked at 6.33 out of a maximum of 9. The result of this disturbance created this Aurora
