"AURORA SPRITES" SIGHTED OVER NEW ZEALAND:  For the past few
days, Earth has been moving through a stream of solar wind gusting with
speeds of 700+ kLast night in New Zealand, the stream produced an unusual
display of "aurora sprites" above the Otago Peninsula.  Visit
Spaceweather.com to see the apparition and to learn what probably caused
it.
 
ARCTIC SPACE WEATHER BALLOON LAUNCH: This coming week, Spaceweather.com
will be flying to Sweden with a group of student researchers to launch a
series of space weather balloons inside the Arctic Circle. 
Near-simultaneous launches in the USA and Chile will allow us to probe the
global response of our planet to rising levels of cosmic radiation in the
inner solar system. Today's edition of Spaceweather.com highlights the
science of this mission--and whets our appetite for some very unusual
photos of the Northern Lights.

three continents, more than 14,000 km of linear distance, and 90+ degrees
of magnetic latitude.
