(ORDO NEWS) — The zagrava, which was seen by Ukrainians from several regions, is not a new weapon of the Russian army or a signal from a UFO. The April glow in the night sky over Ukraine is the result of weather on the Sun. This is reported by Weatherboy.
The glow of pink and green colors was observed by Ukrainians in the evening, on Saturday, April 23. In some ways, this phenomenon remotely resembled the northern lights. The USA also had such a play, but taking into account the time difference, it was observed on the night of April 24. Americans from the southern and central States saw the glow.
What a strange glow was seen in the USA and Ukraine
Scientists say that the heatwave was triggered by a powerful geomagnetic storm. It was she who provoked the “glow” in places where it should not normally be.
This time, the coronal mass ejection on the Sun turned out to be so strong that some inhabitants of the planet Earth could not only feel it, but also see it. The US Space Weather Forecast Center rated the solar storm at 4G.
When such flares occur on the Sun and the coronal mass is directed toward our planet, the geomagnetic protective field is activated. This physical-cosmic contact is called a storm.
That is, our planet takes care of itself. If there was no geomagnetic field, humanity would have died a long time ago from solar radiation and such bursts.
In Ukraine, residents of Kyiv, Chernihiv, Cherkasy, Volyn and Rivne regions observed the glow in the evening sky. Such phenomena can actually have a very strong effect on a person’s well-being. In addition to the beautiful phenomenon in the atmosphere, there may be total complaints of poor health in weather-dependent people.
In addition, if the surges have a large power, mobile communication and the Internet may disappear on Earth.
An aurora, also known as the northern lights (aurora borealis) in the Northern Hemisphere or the southern lights (aurora australis) in the Southern Hemisphere, is a natural light display that occurs in the Earth’s polar regions. It is a breathtaking phenomenon characterized by colorful, shimmering lights that appear to dance across the night sky.
Auroras are caused by interactions between the solar wind, which consists of charged particles emitted by the Sun, and the Earth’s magnetic field. When the solar wind reaches the Earth, it interacts with the magnetosphere, a region around the planet influenced by its magnetic field. This interaction causes the charged particles, mostly electrons and protons, to spiral along the magnetic field lines towards the Earth’s poles.
As the charged particles collide with atoms and molecules in the Earth’s upper atmosphere, particularly oxygen and nitrogen, energy is released in the form of light. The specific colors of the aurora depend on the type of gas involved in the interaction and the altitude at which it occurs. Oxygen emissions typically produce green and red lights, while nitrogen emissions can produce blue and purple lights.
The intensity, extent, and frequency of auroras vary, influenced by factors such as solar activity, geomagnetic storms, and the Earth’s position in its orbit. Auroras are most commonly observed in high-latitude regions, such as near the Arctic and Antarctic circles, although they can occasionally be seen at lower latitudes during periods of increased solar activity.
The appearance of an aurora is a mesmerizing spectacle. It often manifests as shimmering curtains or sheets of light that undulate and change shape in the night sky. The colors can vary from pale greens and pinks to vibrant reds, blues, and purples, creating a stunning display of natural beauty.
Auroras have captivated human imagination and inspired numerous myths and legends throughout history. Today, they remain a source of wonder and attract tourists and photographers who venture to the polar regions for a chance to witness and capture this awe-inspiring celestial phenomenon.
