Solar storm could light up the northern lights before Christmas

The UK Met Office’s Space Weather Prediction Center said today (December 22) that a solar storm that erupted from the sun on Monday (December 20) could boost northern lights displays around the North Pole ahead of Santa’s flight this weekend.

The solar storm was caused by a Coronal mass ejection, or CME, which is a powerful eruption of magnetically charged particles and plasma from the outer layer of sun atmosphere, the aura. When directed at Earth, the ejected coronal masses can create geomagnetic storms that can disrupt satellite services and power grids. One of the most pleasant side effects of these events is an increase in twilight In the regions around the North and South Poles, this is where these wonderful performances are held.
