The earth is inside the stream of the solar wind erupting from a large hole in the atmosphere of the Sun. Its gusts exceed the speed of 700 km / s, the pressure of gusty winds on the Earth’s magnetic field caused bright auroras around the poles.
These aurora borealis are likely to “dance” for at least one more night, as the Earth continues to pass through the stream of the solar wind. The gaseous material in this stream has a “thread” with negative polarity of the magnetic fields. Such fields, when connected to the Earth’s magnetosphere, cause geomagnetic storms.
