Description:

The IMAGE spacecraft observed intense auroral displays in the Fall of 2003 as the material from the coronal mass ejection swept past the Earth. The pressure against the Earths magnetosphere caused it to dump more electrons into the upper atmosphere, creating auroral displays, as we see here over the South Pole. This is a view of the IMAGE data reprojected onto a model of the Earth.
