A Rare red aurora was seen in the sky over Ladakh when a geomagnetic storm hit the Earth. This red aurora was most noticeable from 10 pm to midnight, reaching its brightest point at 10:39 pm.
The Hanle and Merak observatories in Ladakh, known for taking pictures of the night sky, recently witnessed a surprising and breathtaking celestial event in India - a rare red aurora.
On Sunday, the sky in Bengaluru turned red, and the Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA) says it's because of something rare called a Stable Auroral Red (SAR) arc. Instead of the usual green and blue lights we see in the sky, this special event painted the sky in bright shades of red.
We spotted red auroras on November 5th in Ladakh at our Hanle and Merak observatories! This happened because of a geomagnetic storm triggered by a solar storm.
The SAR event happened because of a geomagnetic storm on November 3rd. The Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA) mentioned that the red aurora was seen in the northern sky from 10 pm to midnight, reaching its brightest point at 10:39 pm.
Particles and magnetic fields released during a solar storm on the Sun on November 3rd reached Earth's magnetosphere, leading to a geomagnetic storm that began on November 5th.
The institute explained that on November 5, 2023, a red glow from Oxygen atoms during a Stable Auroral Arc, due to a geomagnetic storm, was seen in the North from both Hanle and Merak around 10:40 pm for about two hours.
Auroras are stunning light displays formed when particles in Earth's atmosphere meet charged particles from the Sun. This happens in the upper atmosphere and is usually visible at high or polar latitudes.
Yet, when there's a powerful solar flare, the charged particles can extend beyond the poles and reach middle latitudes.
