Solar flare reported! You all know what that means, don't you? :-)
 
A large solar flare,  lead to the ejection of a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from the Sun. 'The CME originated from close to the centre of the solar disc on 15th March', says the British Geological Survey (BGS).

When a CME hits the Earth, it lead to a geomagnetic storm, as the Earth's magnetosphere is disturbed by the incoming solar particles. The outcome, provided all the conditions are right, is the appearance of aurora in the night sky.

Coinciding with St. Patrick's Day, the sky turned green with the aurora put on a spectacular show last night, even at lower than usual latitudes, as a result of the severity of the storm. Aurora were visible in both the northern and southern hemisphere, from New Zealand, to the USA and throughout northern Europe.

You can learn more about the geomagnetic storm from the BGS website here: egu.eu/5461Z8

If you'd like to see some stunning aurora photographs you can follow these links:

Rosetta 'producing' comet art now! Both interesting and beautiful from +European Space Agency, ESA :-)
 
The latest on #CometWatch: a false-colour image showing the smooth Hapi region connecting the head and body of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Here, the blue colouring might point to the presence of frozen water ice at or just below the dusty surface.

Ok folks! Get ready to find and support your favorite image of our planet ! I know I will!
 
They face off on the frozen tundra and in the searing deserts. They meet high in the stratosphere and in the depths of the ocean. They clash on the remotest of islands and in the brightly-lit urban centers. They are the best and brightest of Earth’s stars, and they meet again in friendly international competition.

Thirty-two of the best Earth Observatory images will meet in Tournament Earth 3.0, but only one can be the winner. From March 2 through April 6, you can vote for your favorite images from the past year, whittling the total from 32 to 16 to 8 to 4 to 2 in a month-long tournament of remote sensing madness. The competition will be stiff in the four brackets — Data, Art, Event, and Photograph — so it is up to you to separate the winners from the losers. Come back each week to vote in each new round.

New Zealand - just like Norway only on the other side of the world :-)
 
New Zealand in Sunglint

New Zealand is seldom photographed from orbit because it is one of the cloudier parts of planet, and because crew sleep periods often occur when the ISS passes over the area. Read more at http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=85332&src=googleplus
