Gorgeous Pics Of The Day: Aurora Borealis, Antrim


On March 1st , 2011 a fast moving solar wind stream impacted Earth causing a G1 geomagnetic storm which hit during daylight hours for all of the UK and Ireland. What began as an interesting surge in activity turned into a high alert event when the KP reached a value of 6 with a south tilting Bz component.


More to the point, photographer Martin McKenna was out on the Antrim coast taking pictures of it.
