Huge Solar Storm Triggers Unusual Auroras

 

Huge solar storm triggers unusual auroras.

The recent increase of solar activity also has its beautiful sides. All over our planet, observers have been witnessing the results of the magnetic storms in form of unusual lights covering the northern hemisphere and mainly focused on the North Pole. The current solar storms are by far the largest we have witnessed in quite some time, yet it is expected that these are still very small compared to what is to follow in the near future, ramping up to what NASA announces as the largest ones end of 2012, beginning of 2013.

These images were taken in Quebec, Canada over the past few days:
