www.spaceweather.com has this spooky aurora displayed on their site just in time for Halloween.

I could not download a copy as OC.net said that the folder is full.

There is another spooky aurora posted on www.spaceweather.com.

Since the CME from the X-solar flares was not directed at earth, the aurora display was not so spectacular this time.

Let me help you out with that.

If you right click on the image from a website, and select copy image URL, you can then click the image icon Just below the Italic I and paste that URL between the brackets.

To see what it looks like, just quote this post, and in the text you will see the actual URL pasted between those brackets.

Northern lights may expand south next couple days

WEDNESDAY JAN 08, 2014  WASHINGTON (AP) — Northerners thawing out from a bitter freeze may get rewarded with shimmering northern lights the next couple days.

U.S. space weather forecaster Joe Kunches said the sun shot out a strong solar flare late Tuesday, which should arrive at Earth early Thursday. It should shake up Earth's magnetic field and expand the Aurora Borealis south. He said best viewing would probably be Thursday evening, weather permitting.

That is spooky yet at the same time strangely romantic. I wouldn't mind going there for my honeymoon.

Here is one from Fairbanks, Alaska on Dec. 31, 2013

I saw "Alaska" and got all excited but when I ran outside I found only clouds.

There hasn't been a good aurora here in a long time, granted I don't actually live as far north as Fairbanks.

I've had the opportunity to witness some pretty amazing northern lights here in Canada.

Have a look at this time-lapse video of Aurora Borealis in Norway (put to music by Boards of Canada). Beautiful!

St. Elmo's fire.

If you've heard of St Elmo's Fire than this is what it looks like... If you haven't, then basically it's static discharge mainly occurring during thunderstorm activity. It occurs on the masts of yachts, but in this photo it's across the windscreen of my aeroplane.

This is awesome. Would not want to be out in the water when this strikes.

Can they see the aurora borealis in Aurora, Colorado?  Huh

Sometimes, but the folks in the higher latitudes in Canada, Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and Illinois are more likely to see auroras than those in the lower latitudes. Cloud coverage will lessen the chance, so during these frigid blizzards, the chances of seeing an aurora are almost nil. Last night, those in Norway enjoyed seeing auroras but those in the USA had clouds so they could not see them. I wonder if Canada spotted any?

Once I saw an aurora that was an unusual reddish hue that is normally not seen after the sunset hours here in Los Angeles when we had some major X-Class storms in 2011 and 2012. During that same time frame, folks in Arizona were able to capture this red aurora on time-lapsed photography. However, here in the lower latitudes, we do not get the spectacular swirls which one sees in Norway and even in Alaska. Again, only if one were to know when and where to look, would one find auroras here in the lower latitudes.

Here is an aurora from Northern Norway taken early this morning, Jan. 10, 2014
However, the poster made a slight mistake: posted "September 1, 2014" -- which in the future).  laugh

Oh wow! The Heavens tell of the glories of God.

The Milky Way and a glorious rainbow aurora were visible in Northern Norway on Jan. 10, 2014.
