This is not surprising mudra. I've been following large earthquake patterns for years and this particular phenomenon has been occurring whenever there is a quake 8. or above. In addition there appears to be larger quakes when there are Coronal Holes facing the plane. As it is The entire planet vibrates like a bell whose clacker struck the inside. It recedes after a few days. As it is Solar wind speed: 676.4 km/sec, which is high where Earth is now fully inside a stream of solar wind flowing from a large coronal hole on the sun. The buffeting action of the stream is causing intermittent auroras around the Arctic Circle--some of them quite bright.
"This was an aurora storm within a storm," says Wright, who spent the evening guiding a group of sky watchers for Lights over Lapland. "We went out in 100% clouds, strong winds and blowing snow. Suddenly, the clouds parted and the guests got to see a full-on aurora storm."
The stream of solar wind powering these auroras is broad, and it could take Earth two or three days to cross it.
