Beautiful auroras for England

www.universetoday.com...



On the evening of the 5th of August 2011 the Aurora Borealis, Northern Lights were seen as far South as Southern England! At approximately 18:00 Universal Time (19:00 BST) the Earth’s magnetosphere was hit by a coronal mass ejection from the sun, triggering a powerful geomagnetic storm and Aurora.

Now this is interesting, I have not seen headlines for this sort of thing often.

The article does state that this is fairly common for the area, but this time it stretched farther south that usual.
Wow.

On a side note I would request that someone figure a way to combine my favorite desert sunsets here in Arizona with those auroras. Its the next X prize.
