    Geomagnetic storm

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JesperG shot these fisheye time-lapse videos of aurora borealis in the skies over Silkeborg, Denmark. 'Normally these scenes are seen north of here, in Norway, Sweden and Finland,' he said. 'These fantastic colors did wake me up indeed.'
    - jmsaba, CNN iReport producer

    As explained by SpaceWeather: Earth's magnetic field has been strongly disturbed since approximately 1300 UT on Sept. 26th when a CME hit our planet. The impact strongly compressed the magnetosphere, exposing geosynchronous satellites to solar wind plasma, and ignited auroras.

    Here in Denmark, the aurora show was unusually strong and colorfull.
