Questions my darlins. Lots and Lots of Questions!
I'm copying the entire article from Spaceweather.com because it is virtually impossible to back track their articles off the main page of their site.
Does anyone else have a strong suspicion that there is something else going on here? There was no geomagnetic storms last night nor any other night for the past week. The Earth facing coronal holes are very small, with solar wind speed hovering between 600-750km per second during this event. So first off: why was there any auroras happening to begin with? Secondly, this was completely unannounced and "Shocked" the population in Norway that saw this happen.
"Residents for hundreds of miles were taken by surprise by these strange lights, which prompted calls to the police and 'The aliens are coming!' hysteria!" says Chris Nation who runs the Aurora Addicts guiding service.There was NO geomagnetic storms last night, yet this video says that NASA waited for a month for the perfect conditions....
The images above is from this VIDEO HERE
At 22:32pm april 5 we had a blast hit our magnetosphere, and the solar wind speeds began to rise a bit. But NASAs sounding rockets AZURE, were launched at 22:14UTC, BEFORE there was any elevation of solar wind speeds, before there was any magnetosphere disturbances, and through out this all, there was NO geomagnetic storms and certainly not any that reached KP5.
So NASA magically knew to launch these rockets ahead of time, knew that there would be a geomagnetic storm (that didn't exist) for the "perfect conditions".
And then we have the payload of these purported rockets:
The twin rockets deployed two chemical tracers: trimethyl aluminum (TMA) and a barium/strontium mixture...... Sound Familiar?
I have questions.... Lots and Lots of fuckin' questions!
This is the video of the event, recorded in Tromso Norway April 5th 2019:
ROCKETS DUMP CHEMICALS INTO NORTHERN LIGHTS: Last night (April 5th) in Norway, researchers at the Andøya 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:Aurora Addicts guiding service.
When the night began, Nation, Hartviksen, and their clients were treated to a display of auroras, ignited by a stream of solar wind buffeting Earth's magnetic field. "As the auroras started to ebb away, our friends at Andøya launched their rockets into the fading lights," says Nation. "The show began anew as the rockets released their payload into the upper atmosphere."
An automated webcam operated by Chad Blakely of Lights over Lapland in Abisko, Sweden, caught the first puffs of powder emerging from the rockets. "It looked like an invasion of UFOs," says Blakley.webcam has been taking a picture every five minutes for nearly 10 years. These images are by far the most exciting I've ever seen it record."
The name of the sounding rocket mission is AZURE--short for Auroral Zone Upwelling Rocket Experiment. Its goal is to measure winds and currents in the ionosphere, a electrically-charged layer of the Earth's atmosphere where auroras appear. Specifically, the researchers are interested in discovering how auroral energy might percolate down toward Earth to influence the lower atmosphere.
The twin rockets deployed two chemical tracers: trimethyl aluminum (TMA) and a barium/strontium mixture. These mixtures create colorful clouds that allow researchers to visually track the flow of neutral and charged particles, respectively. According to NASA, which funded the mission, the chemicals pose no hazard to residents in the region. Aurora alerts: SMS text, email.
Update--a movie! "Here is my realtime video of the surprise rocket launch last night from NASA/ASC," reports Ole Salomonsen of Tromsø, Norway. "I was shocked when I saw this in the night sky facing north, I was not aware of the launch.
