Many astronomy enthusiasts were looking for the aurora borealis due to recent solar activity. Even before 10 p.m. on Saturday, Karol Wójcicki, popularizer of astronomy, author of the blog “With your head in the stars” wrote on social media: “There is no aurora at all, and the conditions have deteriorated greatly. We must expect the arrival of further CMEs (coronal mass ejections – ed. .). They can come after midnight.

Just before 11 p.m. the first reports of the aurora appeared.

“The aurora is still present in the sky, although much weaker than yesterday,” Wójcicki wrote after 11 p.m.

Aurora borealis – what is it and how is it formed?

The aurora borealis is a light phenomenon that occurs mainly near the North and South Poles. The scientific name of the aurora borealis is aurora borealis at the North Pole and aurora australis at the South Pole.

This phenomenon occurs when energized gas particles sent by the Sun hit the Earth's upper atmosphere at high speed. The planet is protected from “attack” by its magnetic field. It redirects particles towards the north and south poles, and the particles interact with gases in our atmosphere, causing the characteristic multi-colored lights to appear.
