Aurora Panorama 3, Lyngenfjord.

2000Aurora Panorama 3

The vivid green Northern Lights dance above Lyngenfjord, Norway, tracing out the shape of the Earth’s magnetic field above the waters.
Green, the most common colour associated with aurorae, is produced by oxygen atoms and molecules energised by the impact of solar particles that have escaped the sun’s atmosphere, causing them to glow brightly

The Full Eclipse In America’s Skies.

Patchy clouds obscured the view for some places like Nashville, Tenn., but even if the eclipse couldn’t be seen, people were treated to other unworldly phenomena, such as birds retreating from the sky and crickets chirping in midday.

At 2:49 p.m. ET, the eclipse crossed Charleston, S.C., and moved out over the Atlantic, exactly as predicted.
It left behind millions of Americans whose view of the world was briefly altered and, for some, forever changed.

A rare lunar event called the “super blue blood Moon” is seen behind the pier in Santa Monica, California.
This red glow is produced by the same effect that gives us red sunsets.
Sunlight skims through the Earth’s atmosphere on its way to the Moon and gets refracted or bent.
