A month in space: A Martian dust devil, Milky Way bubbles and a star trek navigational aid – in pictures

A towering dust devil casts a serpentine shadow over the Martian surface in this image acquired by Nasa's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter

Ultraviolet jellyfish: Wispy tendrils of hot dust and gas glow brightly in this UV image of the Cygnus Loop nebula, taken by Nasa's Galaxy Evolution Explorer. The nebula lies about 1,500 light-years away, and is a remnant from a supernova that occurred between 5,000 and 8,000 years ago.

Note all the straight lines of green in the aurora at Faskrudsfjordur, Iceland.
The path of straight moving particles ionizing the atmospheric gases.
It looks like a brush which Tesla created in his lab.

It may not be a flow but just enough pull on electron quantum orbit and
relaxed to again dislodge electrons to issue a green light. In effect an AC
or alternating current dislodging electrons as the gas stays in one place.
