The first aurora of the coming year was found in Finland. “Happy New Year!” Ryann Elsein congratulated everybody for taking a photo of the glowing sky in the village of Inari in the Finnish province of Lapland.
The shining appeared at 00:30 on the night of January 1 and 2 and nearly flawlessly coincided with a period of negative Bz, ” the photographer said.
The parameter Bz two characterizes the level and route of the interplanetary magnetic field, which is influenced via solar activity. With a fine value, its strains of pressure coincide in direction with the Earth’s magnetic field, and there are no auroras, and with a negative one, they do not coincide.
The larger the negative value, the brighter the shine. In other words, a crack opened in the Earth’s magnetic field, and a vulnerable move of photo voltaic wind penetrating via it induced a mild representation. Soon greater bright spectacles are expected: on January four and 5, the high-speed go with the flow of the solar wind from a large hole in the solar atmosphere will strike the Earth’s magnetic field.
