New form of the Northern Lights discovered

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A new form of the northern lights has been captured by amateur enthusiasts, researchers have revealed.

The phenomenon of glowing green lights rippling across the night sky, also known as the aurora borealis, have long captivated the public and experts alike.

The northern lights have been seen in many forms, including “quiet arcs”, spirals and corona.

But now, thanks to the work of amateur enthusiasts, Palmroth and colleagues say they have discovered a previously unknown form, a pattern they claim resembles sand dunes.

L.A.T.1961

It looks a lot like a gravity wave formation, maybe a noctilucent cloud formation illuminated by the aurora instead of the sun ?
