Pictures of the Aurora caused by Solar Flares from the Sun – 22/01/12

For those of you not aware the Sun produced a very large solar flare recently and from it produced a sweet light show. I got to see no such light show form my location so I went on an online search and here’s what I found so far.

“We went out with snowmobiles to wait for the incoming storm,” says Pietikäinen. “The show started slowly, but after 15mins the landscape was green! This was the first time for Thomas (pictured above) to see the Northern Lights. He was very happy.”
