Yeah... and with that pict on Spaceweather.com is written (unlikely and unexpected):
APRIL AURORAS: According to the space weather forecast, geomagnetic storms were unlikely on April 1st. It would've been foolish to go out looking for Northern Lights. Warren Gammel of Fairbanks, Alaska, decided to check the skies anyway, and this is what he saw:
"I didn't expect to see too much when I went out at 2 a.m. on April 1st, but the auroras were fairly strong," he says. "I took these pictures using a Canon T1i with a Pelang 8mm fisheye lens."
The display was caused by a minor but effective solar wind stream that arrived during the early hours of April 1st. The impact sparked bright lights across the Arctic realm of North America. No joke: It pays to be alert for auroras.
