Aurora Borealis

Aurora Borealis (Armonk, New York)—May 11, 2024. A powerful coronal mass ejection (CME) produced an intense geomagnetic storm that produced Auroral displays in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The displays reached areas where Auroras are rarely seen. Final data showed that the responsible solar storm was the second strongest since regular record keeping began in 1932 and only slightly weaker than a November 13, 1960 event. A great article on the event can be found in The Washington Post.

Don Sutherland replied to Esther:

That's a shame. It's unfortunate there's so much light pollution around today. Astronomers are increasingly complaining about the light pollution. As excessive lighting wastes energy and aggravates climate change (when generated from the burning of fossil fuels), and adversely impacts bird migrations, the case for policies that seek to limit it is growing stronger.
