Earth's atmosphere to dramatically change from slowly shimmering waves
of light to wildly shifting streaks of color.
Discovering what causes auroras to change will provide scientists with
important details on how the planet's magnetosphere works and the
important Sun-Earth connection.

‘Magnetic ropes’ link northern lights to sun
Scientists capture ‘spectacular eruptions’ of aurora borealis
NASA satellites map 3-D structure for first time
December 12, 2007: Randy Boswell
NASA scientists say they’ve made key discoveries about the northern
lights, including the presence of “magnetic ropes” linking the Earth’s
upper atmosphere to the sun.
The discoveries were reported after a fleet of satellites and
ground-based stations captured “spectacular eruptions” of the mysterious
phenomenon above Canada earlier this year.
The findings, revealed Tuesday at meetings of the American Geophysical
Union in San Francisco, follow the February deployment of five
satellites dedicated to studying the aurora borealis, in concert with a
network of 20 ground observatories across northern Canada and Alaska.
The discoveries began in March, when a powerful space “substorm” —
streams of energy from the sun interacting with Earth’s magnetic field —
illuminated previously unrecorded events in the planet’s upper
The storm, lasting about two hours, took place above Canada and Alaska.
“The substorm behaved quite unexpectedly,” said Vassilis Angelopoulos, a
University of California researcher leading an international team that
includes several Canadian scientists.
“The auroras surged westward twice as fast as anyone thought possible,
crossing 15 degrees of longitude in less than one minute. The storm
traversed an entire polar time zone, or 400 miles (640 kilometres), in
60 seconds flat.
Dr Angelopoulos estimated the storm's power was equal to the energy
released by a magnitude 5.5 earthquake.”
In an interview with CanWest News Service, Angelopoulos said the storm
offered the first clear evidence of colossal magnetic columns — long
theorized by scientists but never before seen — that run between Earth
and the sun and offer a “conduit for energy” that manifests as bursts of
“The satellites have found evidence of magnetic ropes connecting Earth’s
upper atmosphere directly to the sun,” said David Sibeck at NASA’s
Maryland-based Goddard Space Flight Center.

"We believe that solar wind particles flow in along these ropes,
providing energy for geomagnetic storms and auroras," said Dr Sibeck.
"THEMIS encountered its first magnetic rope on May 20. It was very
large, about as wide as Earth, and located approximately 40,000 miles
above Earth's surface in a region called the magnetopause."
In March this year satellites and ground-based instruments from THEMIS
observed an eruption in the Northern Lights over Canada. This substorm
was witnessed moving at over 39,000 kilometres per hour and it is
estimated that its total power consumption during its two-hour life was
a colossal five hundred thousand billion Joules (press release, coverage
in AFP, Wired, National Geographic, Space.com).
In a statement, the team described the ropes as “a twisted bundle of
magnetic fields organized much like the twisted hemp of a mariner’s
rope. Spacecraft have detected hints of these ropes before, but a single
spacecraft was insufficient to map their 3-D structure.”
Now, the NASA project’s five satellites “were able to perform the feat.”
Another team member, University of California’s Jonathan Eastwood, told
CanWest News that a later storm on July 4 exploded with an energy
equivalent to “100 million fireworks” and provided scientists with
“unprecedented detail” in their observations of the northern lights.
The NASA project is called THEMIS for Time History of Events and
Macroscale Interactions during Substorms. The leader of the Canadian
branch of the project is University of Calgary scientist Eric Donovan,
and 16 Canadian sites — including Prince George, B.C., and Whitehorse,
Yukon, — host monitoring stations that share data with the orbiting
Make New Discoveries About Northern Lights
NEWS FROM NASA's main AGU 2007 page: (Click

A fleet of NASA spacecraft, launched less than eight months ago, has
made three important discoveries about spectacular eruptions of Northern
Lights called "substorms" and the source of their power.
NASA's Time History of Events and
Macroscale Interactions during Substorms
(THEMIS) mission observed
the dynamics of a rapidly developing substorm, confirmed the existence
of giant magnetic ropes and witnessed small explosions in the outskirts
of Earth's magnetic field. The findings will be presented at the annual
meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco in December.
The discoveries began on March 23, when a substorm erupted over Alaska
and Canada, producing vivid auroras for more than two hours. A network
of ground cameras organized to support THEMIS photographed the display
from below while the satellites measured particles and fields from
“The substorm behaved quite unexpectedly," says Vassilis Angelopoulos,
the mission's principal investigator at the University of California,
Los Angeles. "The auroras surged westward twice as fast as anyone
thought possible, crossing 15 degrees of longitude in less than one
minute. The storm traversed an entire polar time zone, or 400 miles, in
60 seconds flat.”
Photographs taken by ground cameras and NASA's Polar satellite (also
supporting the THEMIS mission) revealed a series of staccato outbursts
each lasting about 10 minutes. Angelopoulos said that some of the bursts
died out while others reinforced each other and went on to become major
Angelopoulos was quite impressed with the substorm's power and he
estimated the total energy of the two-hour event at five hundred
thousand billion Joules. That's equivalent to the energy of one
magnitude 5.5 earthquake . Where does all that energy come from? THEMIS
may have found the answer.
"The satellites have found evidence of magnetic ropes connecting Earth's
upper atmosphere directly to the sun," said David Sibeck, project
scientist for the mission at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center,
Greenbelt, Md. "We believe that solar wind particles flow in along these
ropes, providing energy for geomagnetic storms and auroras."
A magnetic rope is a twisted bundle of magnetic fields organized
much like the twisted hemp of a mariner's rope. Spacecraft have detected
hints of these ropes before, but a single spacecraft was insufficient to
map their 3D structure.
This is an artist's concept of the THEMIS main
orbits, represented by red ovals. Blue lines represent the Earth's
magnetic field. The white flash represents energy released during
substorms. The THEMIS spacecraft will line up at midnight over the
United States every four days. The distances range from about half the
distance to the moon to about sixth of the distance to the moon. This
position will help scientists pinpoint exactly when and where substorms
occur. Print-resolution copy Credit: NASA
THEMIS' five identical micro-satellites were
able to perform the feat.br />
"THEMIS encountered its first magnetic rope on May 20," said Sibeck. "It
was very large, about as wide as Earth, and located approximately 40,000
miles (70,000 km) above Earth's surface in a region called the
magnetopause." The magnetopause is where the solar wind and Earth's
magnetic field meet and push against one another like sumo wrestlers
locked in combat. There, the rope formed and unraveled in just a few
minutes, providing a brief but significant conduit for solar wind
THEMIS also has observed a number of small explosions in Earth's
magnetic bow shock. "The bow shock is like the bow wave in front of a
boat," explained Sibeck. "It is where the solar wind first feels the
effects of Earth's magnetic field. Sometimes a burst of electrical
current within the solar wind will hit the bow shock and—Bang! We get an
The THEMIS satellites are equipped with instruments that measure ions,
electrons and electromagnetic radiation in space. The satellites will
line up along the sun-Earth line next February to perform their key
measurements. Researchers expect to observe, for the first time, the
origin of substorm onsets in space and learn more about their evolution.
Scientists from the US, Canada, Western Europe, Russia and Japan are
contributing to the scientific investigation over the next two years.
THEMIS is the fifth medium-class mission under NASA's Explorer Program,
which provides frequent flight opportunities for world-class scientific
investigations within the heliophysics and astrophysics science areas.
The Explorer Program Office at Goddard manages the NASA-funded THEMIS
mission. The University of California, Berkeley's Space Sciences
Laboratory is responsible for project management, science and
ground-based instruments, mission integration and post launch
operations. ATK (formerly Swales Aerospace), Beltsville, Md., built the
