January Aurora Over Norway

What's that in the sky? An aurora. A large coronal mass ejection occurred on our Sun five days ago, throwing a cloud of fast moving electrons, protons, and ions toward the Earth. Although most of this cloud passed above the Earth, some of it impacted our Earth's magnetosphere and resulted in spectacular auroras being seen at high northern latitudes. Pictured above is a particularly photogenic auroral corona captured last night above Grotfjord, Norway. To some, this shimmering green glow of recombining atmospheric oxygen might appear as a large eagle, but feel free to share what it looks like to you. This round of solar activity is not yet over -- a new and even more powerful solar flare occurred yesterday that might provide more amazing aurora as soon as tonight.

I've been reading through the Twitter timeline of instant legend Felicity Aston, who just completed a 1,700 km ski trek across Antarctica this weekend. Alone. She sent out tweets during her journey at @felicity_aston, documenting in real-time the emotional and physical feat that took her 58 days across a rather barren South Pole icescape. Her story is a rollercoaster, with faulty gear acting up, a broken watch, meeting fellow adventurers at the South Pole, falling into meditative states while skiing and listening to music, breaking down at the sight of mountains on the horizon. Her prose is clean, witty, and insightful. This material will obviously end up in some sort of publication soon. Major congratulations to Ms. Aston, who's experience is still unfolding as we sit in front of computers: twitter.com/felicity_aston

Some tweets:

"The bad weather finally caught up with me. Wind, snow, restless skies thick with cloud and flat light."

"Breezy day with trousers held together with sticky tape and velcro. Need to do some sewing this evening..."

"I had visitors last night - real ones not hallucinations! - a convoy of vehicles coming out of Pole came to say HI"

"I can see mountains and they look beautiful. It's like first sight of a finish line. I stopped in my tracks and cried."

"Enjoying a perfect Antarctic evening. Completely still and silent. The sun is so hot I can sit outside and savour the view."

"It's incredible that I can ski all day now with very little going on in my head. It's almost a form of meditation."

"Accidentally peed on my gloves which hang from my wrists on elastic. Not sure what kind of omen it is for the year."

"Disaster. I've reached the bottom of my pot of peanut butter.".

Simply stunned by Alabama Shakes. Great new band. Playing in Milwaukee at the Pabst Theater in March.

Amazing photographs from The Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival 2012. It just doesn't look real.
