Residents of the icy countryside of Tromso in Norway saw a sky filled with a strange pink-orange light, likely caused by a plasma ball or some kind of violent cosmic wind, splitting Earth’s magnetosphere in two.
According to the sheet Spacefascinating photos taken in Norway on December 10 are causing debate among astronomers, as something that looks like an aurora but is not appears: Instead of green light, something strange pink-orange danced in the sky.
Aurora hunting photographer Markus Varik, who has spent many years tracking things “Northern Lights” This strange character, owner of numerous photos of the phenomenon on the night of December 10, admitted to having never seen anything like it.

Scientists think the thing most likely to explain strange auroras is a tombt crowning mass ejection (CME) very special of the Sun. These are balls of plasma fired when the Sun is angry, often creating auroras when they collide with Earth’s magnetosphere.
But something strange happened: They searched space weather data and saw no recent CME launches.

Scientists from the Royal Greenwich Museum (UK) pointed out another reason, which is a cosmic wind – also from our Sun – is unusually powerful and penetrates deep into the Earth’s atmosphere, up to 100 km above the planet’s surface.
At that time, the dangerous stellar wind was tearing apart the magnetosphere and atmosphere, interacting with nitrogen to create a stream of haunting pink-orange light, instead of creating blue light due to interaction with oxygen at high higher levels.
This was actually inferred indirectly from an event in November, the pink aurora appeared after a geomagnetic storm – caused by cosmic flares triggered by the Sun – tore apart the magnetosphere and created a path for stellar wind to penetrate deep into the atmosphere.
What really happened in a phenomenon that appears to be of an even greater magnitude than December 10 remains a mystery.
