APOD 3.4

February 9, 2012:

The video above (link) shows various settings in which auroras occur.The video is specifically a timelapse display filmed in Norway.  Recently, our Sun has become more active, therefore giving off more solar flares and CME's which can result in auroras.  Astronomers predict that we will be seeing even more auroras in the future since solar maximum has still not occured.
