Powerful solar flare reporters began their seven-hour quest north to photograph modern monuments against an aurora-filled sky.
What do we see in today’s NASA image?
The iconic peaks of The Arctic Henge at Rivehorf in North Iceland were then aligned with the stars: some lined up due north on one side and due south on the other.
Today’s amazing NASA image, taken after sunset late last month, is directly due south; But since the image is a composite covering many parts of the sky, the North Star is actually at the top of the frame.
Familiar constellations can also be seen, including the Great Bear (Ursa) on the left and Orion (Ogre) on the lower right. The searchers’ efforts were successful, and the sky was dramatically filled with bright and memorable auroras that glowed with amazing colors, including red, pink, yellow, and green; Sometimes several times over a period of time.
