The Northern Lights at Latitude 65°49' - March 1, 2011<br />
<br />
Observers at high latitudes witnessed strong auroral activity on March 1, 2011. The source of this disturbance was the arrival of a high speed coronal wind stream combined with a southward pointing interplanetary magnetic field (IMF), producing long periods of minor to major geomagnetic storm conditions (G2 on the NOAA scale) between 12:00-17:00 UTC on March 1.<br />
