1. The Big Bang Never Happened [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... galaxy, (pp. 47, 233). Lerner suggests that the observation of magnetic and electrical fields and currents within the solar wind strongly suggests that electromagnetism may well have a role between stars and even between galaxies. The next three chapters ('A History of Creation', 'The Rise of Science', and 'The Strange Career of Modern Cosmology'), some 110 pages, are taken up by what seems a rather biased review of these subjects. Chapter 5 'The Spears of Odin' (an old Scandinavian term for the Aurora Borealis) returns to the subject of plasma physics and traces its development from pioneering work by Birkeland (of the Birkeland-Eyde Furnace Nitrogen fixation method fame) in the last decade of the 19th century. Birkeland started by studying the aurora and traced the aurora and magnetic storms to electrical effects from the sun, linking magnetic storms on earth to with the rotation of groups of sun-spots. He was able to 'quite accurately' estimate the speed of the charged particles from the sun, to within about 1,000 km/sec. ...

Gulf of St, Lawrence. Aboard the m.v. Appleby, Port Cartier to Immingham. "The aurora borealis was sighted at 0330 UTC. There was a band measuring 35 long in azimuth, with deepblue almost black vertical bands lying between the altitudes of 15 and 25. The colour changed to brilliant blue at 0335, lasting for about 15 minutes before cloud began to obscure it." What were the "almost black" vertical bands embedded in the main band? Aurora expert R. Livesey replied as follows. "There is a phenomenon called the 'black aurora' which consists of small regions of very low luminosity embedded in brighter auroral light; the 'black' rays reported from the Appleby could have been a phenomenon of this type." (Wilson, J.L.; "Aurora Borealis," Marine Observer, 69:112, 1999.) Black auroras ...

... the electrical connections of the aurora's "tails" to other bodies in the Jovian system — not just to Jupiter's closest moon Io, but also to its second moon Europa. For almost two years now, we have been making the case in these pages that the "volcanic"plumes on Jupiter's moon Io are plasma discharge arcs from the moon's electrical transactions with the gas giant. In recent years a growing number of scientists have acknowledged the electrical exchange between the two bodies, as confirmed by Io's" footprint" in the Jovian aurora above. But now a new study reports that one of the bright spots in this aurora is the footprint of a continuous electrical exchange between Jupiter and another moon, Europa. In October of 2005, the journal Geophysical Research Letters published a report from a research team headed by Denis Grodent of the University of Liège, Belgium, noting the team's discovery of a short auroral tail linking Jupiter to Europa. The report notes that this footprint is similar to that of Io, but less energetic. Grodent's team based its report on ...

6. Flash Auroras [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 117: May-June 1998 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Flash Auroras Flash auroras are ephemeral auroral displays lasting only a few seconds. They occur when auroral and geomagnetic activity is subdued worldwide. Under such quiet conditions, scientists do not expect to see auroras of any kind. Yet, experienced aurora observers keep on reporting these transient events. June 13/14, 1987. Winnipeg, Saskatche wan. T. Lohvinenko saw a fragmentary active rayed arc in a clear sky at 0644 UT. It lasted for only a few seconds. February 13/14, 1991. Near Glasgow, Scotland. While facing south, A. Simmons observed rays and a luminous patch at an altitude of 45. The phenomenon lasted 2 minutes. In both of the above instances, the geomagnetic field was quiet and auroral activity virtually zero worldwide. "It is unprofitable at this stage to speculate on the cause or causes of the mid-latitude flash aurora as it is known in the Aurora Section ...

... to demonstrate what ancient man would have seen in those circumstances. The daylit part of Earth would be seen as a crescent, which would revolve downwards from left to right, being at its brightest at its mid point at midnight. Talbott's scenario only allowed for a fixed northern configuration whereas mythology seemed to be saying that whatever was above was repeated below in the underworld; this was because the rest of the configuration was due to the Earth's polar aurorae, those in the northern hemisphere observing the reflection of the northern lights, or aurora borealis, and those in the southern hemisphere observing the southern lights, or aurora australis. Significantly, it could be deduced from measurements of Earth's decreasing magnetic field that this was very much stronger a few thousand years ago and therefore any auroral effects would be greater. It has only recently been established that the auroras are electrical effects caused by interactions of Earth's magnetic field with the Solar wind, in which the Earth acts as a generator, releasing power of tremendous dimensions. Photographs taken from space show the aurora to consist of ...

... ...a distant tinkling, like bells. It came again, louder, just as a curtain of green light swept the entire width of the sky from north to south. Each time green flushed the sky, the bells rang, the sound softening to a gentle tinkle as the light died." (Hasselstrom, Linda; "Night of the Bells," Readers Digest, p. 185, April 1992. Cr. J.B. Dotson.) Comment. Note the correlation of the sound with the green portion of the aurora. July 29, 1990. On Coll Island in Centennial Lake, 120 kilometers west of Ottawa. Watching an auroral display, L.R. Morris heard the sound of the aurora: "It was a faint but distant windlike sound; which, by process of elimination, could not be accounted for by any phenomenon other than the aurora." (Anonymous; "Auroral Sounds," Sky& Telescope, 83:105, January 1992. Cr. D. Snowhook.) Comment. Auroras have been heard for centuries ...

... from space, auroras appear as uneven rings of fire surrounding the Earth's magnetic poles. These rings, one at the north, the other at the south, are formed when particles from the Sun enter the funnels of the Earth's magnetosphere where they become temporarily trapped, and energetically excited, by the Van Allen belts. Once excited, these particles are then bounced off the upper atmosphere around the funnels, and it is this restricted bouncing that allows them to maintain a circular form when seen from above. Photographs of the entire ring-like aurora were first taken by the Dynamics Explorer-A satellite, which was equipped with super-reflective mirrors to aid its photographing system, in 1981 (69)-- somewhat before the Russian cosmonauts that Zysman himself mentions. (70) The boat of the Egyptian "sun-god", being towed, shown at bottom, with its inverted counterpart shown at the top of the sky. Among other matters, this indicates that the crescent, which gave rise to the mythological "sun-boat", was actually seen to circle around a center, which ...
