Something Spectacular

Aurora As Viewed From The Summit

As mentioned in last night’s Observer Comment we had the potential to see an Aurora Borealis (aka, the Northern Lights). And what an Aurora we saw! At around 12:28AM EDT, the ACE Spacecraft detected the Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from the solar flare earlier in the week and soon after, the CME reached earth. By 01:01AM EDT, Auroral activity could be viewed but it was not until later that the summit would clear from the fog for a spectacular viewing. The colors were amazing and some of the Observers were able to capture them. A time lapse video can also be viewed on our YouTube channel and pictures can be seen on our Facebook page. Hope you can enjoy them as much as we did.
