Auroral Corona

Ian McWhirter, Physics & Astronomy

The aurora borealis is created by streams of charged particles - electrons and protons - ejected by the sun during a “coronal mass ejection”, which reach the earth about three days later. The particles are trapped by the earth’s magnetic field lines and spiral earthward, hitting oxygen atoms high in the atmosphere and putting them into an excited state. The atoms emit light as they relax back to their normal energy level. Coronal aurora is observed when aurora occurs at the magnetic zenith – the point at which the earth’s magnetic field lines converge on the North magnetic pole. This picture of the sky near Kiruna, Northern Sweden, was taken with a “fisheye” lens and shows a view of the entire sky. The constellation of the plough is visible left of centre, much higher in the sky than when seen from Britain, and the moon is setting in the west.
