Uudentyyppiset revontulet - The new type of Aurora Borealis

Working together with space researchers, Finnish amateur photographers have discovered a new auroral form. Named 'dunes' by the hobbyists, the phenomenon is believed to be caused by waves of oxygen atoms glowing due to a stream of particles released from the Sun. Photo/Credit: Kari Saari

Earth’s magnetic song recorded for the first time during a solar storm

Earth's magnetic song recorded for the first time during a solar storm. Data from ESA's Cluster mission has provided a recording of the eerie 'song' that Earth sings when it is hit by a solar storm. The song comes from waves that are generated in the Earth's magnetic field by the collision of the storm.
