Aurora Alert

Among the few highlights of living in the far North, northern lights may be the most delicate. Thursday’s  eruption of active sun spot 1401 (click on the picture to see it in detail) has resulted in a huge coronal mass ejection which shall arrive in a couple of hours (22:30 UTC tonight) and may lead  to  spectacular aurorae.
