On Wednesday, September 10, 2014 the Sun unleashed a pair of coronal mass ejections (CME’s) that subsequently struck Earth on the 11th & 12th.  The resulting solar storms rained down on Earth’s Polar Regions, giving many observers in the U.S. and Europe a rare opportunity to view the legendary Aurora Borealis or “Northern Lights.”  The ensuing solar storms raised the KP index to a level of KP7 or G3 on the NOAA scale.

The past few weeks I have been displaying some amazing aurora images from this event by a few of what I like to call the “Local Group” of photographers here in my immediate NH, MA, VT & ME region. I truly hope you enjoy them and visit their works as they’re some of the very best at what they do.  Also, when it comes to events like this these images are amazing but I urge every one of you to get out and see these events for yourself when possible because you have a finite amount of opportunities to do so in your life.

If you’re interested in viewing the aurora yourself check my short “Aurora Watcher’s Guide” which I just updated on September 14: https://danspace77.com/aurora-guide/

This amazing image was captured by Manchester New Hampshire’s, Chris Georgia on the evening of the 12th at the Pemigewassett Lookout at the Kancamangus Pass, NH around 20:30.  I was actually just there yesterday (Sunday) as I enjoy spending as much time as I can in the mountains. If you haven’t been to the White Mountains and Kancamangus highway of New Hampshire now is certainly the time as fall foliage is in peak season. Yet another amazing job from Chris as usual and check the links below for more of his amazing work.
