A rare powerful eruption in the sun could give northern lights across the country on Saturday. The question is whether this phenomenon is visible.
Thursday exploded and scattered in the sun. The giant flame emitted powerful X-rays and ultraviolet rays, which were fortunately absorbed into the atmosphere.
Here you can see Video of the explosion.
At the same time, a large gas cloud was launched into space at a speed of 2.9 million kilometers per hour. The cloud carries a magnetic field that, when it comes in contact with the Earth’s magnetic field, strong northern lights appear.
This phenomenon, which is usually associated with more polar regions, can be found across the country, actually as far south as Denmark and Germany. Paul Brecke, a researcher at the Norwegian Space Center, informs Aftenboston.
Like the Prio train
But how powerful the effect will be depends on how the magnetic fields are positioned relative to each other. You didn’t know it until an hour before it hit.
– Prio trains with the same polarity will not be connected. On the contrary, there will be a strong connection. It will be the same here. The further it is strengthened, the more south and north lights will come on.
Attendance is expected during Saturday, but the exact time cannot be determined. Then there is another important moment: the weather. Scenes of magical green light require clear weather.
The Norwegian Meteorological Agency does not have particularly good news. Most parts of the country will be overcast on Saturday night and from Sunday to Sunday.
– There may be some cracks in the cloud at Trondelag north of Trondheimsfjorden. Otherwise, there will be a lot of clouds in the north and south, says the on-duty meteorologist.
– It was annoying. Are you sure?
– Probably more likely.
Have to leave town
Pிலைl Brekke has clear instructions for Northern Lights visitors if weather forecasts go wrong. Stay away from city lights. Outside the woods, at the top of the hill.
– Be more patient!
