2/06/2015 — Bright Aurora Borealis seen in Hawaii from the USGS Kilauea Volcano webcam

A few intense ripples of Aurora Borealis were seen from the USGS Pu’u O’o crater (kilauea) volcano mountaintop webcam.

Above: 200% zoom in on the USGS mountaintop Pu’u O’o Kilauea Crater North rim webcam shows some intense green filaments in the sky. As of yet, unconfirmed bright Aurora Borealis.

 

This is something we normally don’t see on the USGS feeds, meaning the Aurora must be fairly bright to outshine the nearby lava vents.

Check the feeds here (for the next few hours these images should be viewable until fade out as daylight draws near).
