View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Markus Varik and his wife are aurora tour guides, operating as Greenlander. He captured this image on the night of November 3, 2021, before midnight, from Tromso, Norway, and wrote: “Even I was impressed. The auroras were strong, one of the best displays in years. I am very tired, but happy.” Thank you so much, Markus! See more from Markus on Facebook and on Instagram. The November 3 CME impact – from a November 2 storm on the sun – sparked a strong G3-class geomagnetic storm. There were intense auroras around the Arctic Circle. According to the University of Alaska’s aurora forecast, you might see a good auroral display tonight, too, possibly dipping into latitudes like those in the northern U.S. Read more about the ongoing auroras.
