On January 22nd 2012, skywatchers in the northern hemisphere were rewarded with amazing displays of aurora. The cause of these displays was a Kp level 5.67 geomagnetic storm originating from solar activity on the 19th of January, produced visible aurorae throughout the northern hemisphere and viewers as far south as northeast England had great auroral views.

some additional info on the geomagnetic storm that caused this lightshow



Geomagnetic field activity ranged from quiet to minor storm levels with brief major storm levels at high latitudes. An interplanetary shock passed the ACE spacecraft at approximately 22/0514Z, likely indicating the arrival of the halo-CME observed on 19 January. This was followed by a geomagnetic sudden impulse (SI) at 22/0614Z (31 nT, Boulder USGS magnetometer). Field activity increased to unsettled to minor storm levels following the SI.

thank you for posting these beautiful photo's! I'm looking forward to see the auroras since I read about the CME but the weather's not really cooperating. IF it's visible in the Netherlands of course. The last really good display I witnessed was at least 20 years ago.

Whoa, I have been out of the loop, but was sensing a strong geomagnetic event happening in the past several days and stood almost feeling it from my porch on several occasions. The weather, the wind, it now validates what I knew without information. What I physically feel is a sort of soft thick air/wind anomaly. The wicked winds were scary to me this time.

Thank you and I am very interested and fascinated by this type of event. Fingers crossed here that the night will be clear and I can see the Lights this far south.

Star for you for your posting efforts.
