Last week, the sun produced 3 different solar storms, level G4 (severe), that all combined and crashed into Earth’s atmosphere. This geomagnetic storm had some negative consequences for electricity supplies, but the images captured both on land and from space are STUNNING. Check them out!
Another post, another awesome gif from NASA!! This gif (made by CauseScience) shows the aurora borealis in the sky as the sun rises, ending with the two light sources ‘touching’!! The video this gif was made from was taken from the International Space Station – #sunrise touches #aurora.
