NOAA POES Auroral Activity


Space Environment Center (SEC) of NOAAiNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrationj provides you this invaluable website. One of their satellites, POESiPolar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite) will scan and gather various atmospheric data while passing over the both poles, and SEC visualizes the power flux in the atmosphere carried by protons and electrons from the sun - which cause the appearances of Aurora - and shows us the current extent and position of Aurora Oval on both poles.
Although this presentation is "estimate" of the location , extent and intensity of Aurora, the color-coded power flux patterens depicted on the monitor is quite striking to the laymen's eyes.
