Title: ROCKETS DUMP CHEMICALS INTO NORTHERN LIGHTS
Post by: Apophis on Apr 06, 2019, 20:23:16
Last night (April 5th) in Norway, researchers at the And√łya Space Center launched two sounding rockets into a minor geomagnetic storm. The results were out of this world. Aurora tour guide Kim Hartviksen photographed glowing blobs of blue and purple caused by the rockets dumping chemical powders into the storm.
