The past 4 days there has been very high activity of solar storms and the Aurora Borealis has been possible to see as far south as to the southern parts of Norway. Actually it is the strongest solar Storm in 8 years. Not since late 2003 has the geomagnetic fields and the solar storms been this active.
However I have been really upset about that – because Oslo, of course, has been covered by a thick layer of clouds, snowstorms and no visibility what-so-ever to this amazing sky phenomenon that the northern lights is.
On the Geophysical Institute home webpage the forecast has been up to 5 these past 4 days, tonight it has gone down to 4 and tomorrow the solar storm is practically over and forecast predicts 2 on the activity scale.
However I will post a webcam picture of the Tromsø sky right now showing the current activity. It would be so awesome to see…
Oh well, until next time!
