Solar flares cause strong solar  storms

Stardate 1/22/12:  Solar flares spotted by NASA
1/24/12:  strongest since 2003, solar/radiation storms ravage the skies, endangering high frequency communications and satellite operations. (and people that may be flying that high).
1/24, 25 – Another effect, extraordinarily vivid auroras. Heres a video, captured in Norway, of swirling strings of skylights. ……

Original article from Mashable.com: Solar Storm Puts Beautiful Northern Lights on Display [VIDEO].

Interestingly, a facebook friend shared a Norwegian’s pic of northern lights taken first week of January.  The poster says:

A Full Sky Aurora Over Norway on January 3 2012 – The display was caused by the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF), which tipped south on Jan. 2nd and partially canceled Earth’s own north-pointing magnetic field. A crack formed in Earth’s magnetosphere, allowing solar wind to flow in and fuel the auroras.
