The incredible Northern Lights show on May 10th/11th will be remembered for years to come. An extreme G5 storm with stunning views of the Aurora. Space weather is important

Flashback to 1989..


https://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=08&month=06&year=2009

"STRANGE LIGHTNING: High above Earth, in the realm of meteors and noctilucent clouds, a strange and beautiful form of lightning dances at the edge of space. Researchers call the bolts "sprites"; they are red, fleeting, and tend to come in bunches.

 "Sprites are a true space weather phenomenon," he adds.

most scientists did not believe they existed until after 1989 when sprites were photographed by cameras onboard the space shuttle.

Yes these are relatively new as are noctilucent clouds which I ve mentioned this before pretty new again and not suppose to be seen as far south as they are now,magnetic field is weakening..

Comment: This image of a sprite is just another excellent example of plasma energy that looks "life-like". This has been classified as a 'carrot' sprite but it sure looks like a squid to me! Note the reference to 1989, which is the year of the Great Magnetic Storm and is most often used as the marker for the onset of Space Weather because this is the time that scientists first realised that national power supply could be effected. However, geomagnetic storms have always provided deliveries of spiritual energy to this planet, the only difference now is the quality and the quantity which is being used to transform our world. The discovery of these plasma "entities" by the space shuttle is a fabrication and less than five minutes on the internet will provide the true facts. The article forgot to tell you that these electrical manifiestations are MASSIVE and can stretch for 60kms!
