It looked very cool, but it seemed quite strange. And I really got the feeling it was a man made thing, whatever it was that I saw..
I would say there's an 90% chance that Steve is man made..

so is it man-made hence recent, which would explain why no record?
or has Steve been there all along (like the aforementioned Asperatis Cloud), seen but not recognized?
I lack the science nolluj to say. thanks for the technical stuff guys, even though most of it is above me
"Based on our results, we assert that STEVE is likely related to an ionospheric process," the researchers wrote in their study, referring to the level of Earth's atmosphere that extends between 50 and 600 miles (80 to 1,000 km) above Earth's surface and sits directly below the planet's magnetic field. More observations taken at different levels of the atmosphere will be required to fully tease out the causes of that mystery of mysteries — good old Steve.
The aurora is the result of an ionospheric process... So they are not really saying anything.
