Another series of spectacular auroras were witnessed by photographer by Øystein Lunde Ingvaldsen, a Norwegian musician.
Mr Ingvaldsen, also an amateur astronomer, continued to photograph the event in Bø, Vesterålen, in the country’s Nordland area, until the early hours of Wednesday morning.
“I was on my way to bed when I suddenly saw the auroras dancing on the sky through my bedroom window,” he said.
"I took my camera and drove to a place where I figured I could get some good pictures, and the sight that met me was truly amazing."
"It's not often I get to see purple auroras, this was truly a fantastic sight."
SDO caught a minor flare and a coronal mass ejection (CME) in profile as they blasted out from the Sun, producing a prominence that rose up and out in a curving arch (Sept. 8, 2010). The particle cloud was not aimed at Earth, so it could not produce geomagnetic effects on Earth. The stills show the arch in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet (UV) light. The movie combines three wavelengths of extreme UV light and covers three hours of activity.
