Northern Lights Now – Active space weather has been providing beautiful aurora and northern lights this Thanksgiving and Black Friday. A large coronal hole is producing strong solar wind which is inducing periods of dancing skies for aurora hunters across the high latitudes. As of Friday, storming levels have reached G2 conditions meaning Northern lights may be visible in a band across Northern Europe, Iceland, Canada, and the Norther US states.
This quick real-time video taken in Kiruna, Sweden Thursday night show a sky full of green and pulsating blues and whites:
