11/5/2003: Aurora from space (II)

Cool Picture UT, There has been a band of bad weather moving across just south of that bright band. I wonder if there's a correlation?

I doubt it. Weather patterns are established long before the aurora/sun activity makes it to earth.

OK, but what about the other way around. Could the Aurora be delineated by the weathers systems? Weather systems have electrical properties that could maybe cause an effect. I don't know, I'm just wondering?

I'm not really qualified to answer, so my guess is as good as yours....that said, I am a believer in entropy, so there is likely some interaction between the weather and the aurora, but it is likely quite minimal in either direction. Now it could really goof with the Earth's magnetic field, although it is more likely that our magnetic field goofs more with the aurora.

There are a lot of good picture on the net but few illustrate its transparency. Especially the curtain type.
