Sneaking Back Sun-day

 

TWILIGHT GREEN: When the sun went down last night in Harstad, Norway, the colors of the sunset included blue, orange … and green.  “With Arctic summer fast approaching, our nights are disappearing rapidly, but I still keep an eye on the sky in case auroras appear,” says Ross McLaughlin, who photographed the display:

“Despite low solar activity, the auroras were very bright. It’s a wonderful to see them mixed with the colors of the twilight sky. I’ll have to make the most of it while I can before the midnight sun arrives!”

This mixture of twilight blue + aurora green will continue to appear around the Arctic Circle for a few more weeks as the seasons change. Dates of special interest are April 9th – 12th when a wide stream of solar wind is expected to engulf Earth, possibly sparking 4 or 5 consecutive days of polar auroras.

    Stopped raining before I set out to the Tokyo Seoul. During the 44 minute walk saw 6 pigeons wheeling and then the river in muddy spate.

    News on Japan has two videos of Japanese macaques, so-called snow monkeys, soaking in a hot springs during the winter. One in the water is carrying and looking at the screen of a mobile device, presumably a Samsung.
