STEVE - Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement

Recommended Posts

This recently described phenomenon is discussed in an article by the Director of the BAA Aurora and Noctilucent Cloud Section. Sandra provides tips on how to observe it.

Note that STEVE should be observable from locations well south of those favoured for conventional aurorae.

I've seen STEVE a few times from northern Scotland and it is does appear quite a bit further south than the main aurora activity - see example images attached and at www.flickr.com/photos/57299237@N05/32023954186. I wonder how many times I've had my eyes peeled on the northern horizon watching the aurora and STEVE has been dancing unnoticed above my head?
