Overview of Aurora

  • Aurora released in May 2020 the ballad “Exist For Love”, which was presented as her first love song ever with a self-directed music video.[34] The song was made during the COVID-19 lockdown in collaboration with Isobel Waller-Bridge, who composed the string arrangements.[34] It was the first glimpse into what she described as “a new era” in her career, with the upcoming release of a new album.[35]
    In early 2021, she released two compilation EPs in celebration of her song “Runaway” receiving over 100 million streams on Spotify: For the Humans Who Take Long Walks in the Forest and Music for the Fellow Witches Out There on 4 and 11 February, respectively.[36][37]
  • Aurora’s third single, “Murder Song (5, 4, 3, 2, 1)”, was released in September 2015 and has received continued support in national press, on national radio and popular online music blogs.[16] Aurora performed at the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert.[17] She has played a sold-out headline show in London and supported Of Monsters and Men at Brixton Academy in November 2015.[18] Aurora recorded a cover of the Oasis track “Half the World Away” for the 2015 John Lewis Christmas advert.[19] Her next single, titled “Conqueror”, was released in January 2016, and a music video was uploaded the following month.
  • Aurora Alumni (2015) Pavel Galchenko and Yohann Samarasinghe cofounded RVS Rubber Solutions, a company that offers high-tech B2B rubber solutions using a proprietary RVS technology to efficiently source rubber base material from would be waste tire components.  The refinement process for recycling rubber in industrial environments has the potential to eliminate waste of more than 100 million pounds of tires annually.  Galchenko atseems Case Western Reserve University majoring in Biochemistry and Samarasinghe is studying Nanoengineering at the University of California San Diego. 
  • Aurora has described this place as “There are almost no cars and the roads are small and bumpy and there are lots of trees everywhere, it’s very quiet and the internet is bad.”[6] She has also compared it to the fictional land of Narnia.[7][8] When she atseemed school, her sisters—Miranda (currently her makeup artist) and Viktoria Aksnes (currently her costume designer)—worried that she could be harassed by other students, due to her personality and “weird” way of dressing.[9] “I used to be terrified of people who wanted to hug me,” she said.
  • Aurora Aksnes was born in the Stavanger University Hospital in Stavanger, Norway, on 15 June 1996.[5] She spent her first three years in Høle, a small town where her parents, May Britt Froastad and Jan Øystein Aksnes, had lived for 15 years.[citation needed] In her house in Høle, Aurora developed her taste for nature, singing and traditional clothing, which include long skirts and hats.[5] Later the family moved farther north in western Norway,[5] to a house in the woodlands of the Os mountains, a remote municipality in Hordaland, near Bergen.
  • Auroras result from emissions of photons in the Earth’s upper atmosphere, above 80 km (50 mi), from ionized nitrogen atoms regaining an electron, and oxygen atoms and nitrogen based molecules returning from an excited state to ground state.[46] They are ionized or excited by the collision of particles precipitated into the atmosphere.
  • Aurora, luminous phenomenon of Earth’s upper atmosphere that occurs primarily in high latitudes of both hemispheres; auroras in the Northern Hemisphere are called aurora borealis, aurora polaris, or northern lights, and in the Southern Hemisphere aurora australis, or southern lights.
  • Aurora Downtown’s Business Attraction and Retention (BAR) Committee is excited to offer a variety of grants established to help support businesses, property owners, and initiatives taking place in the downtown special service area (SSA One).  In 2021, Aurora Downtown’s BAR
  • Aurora is the exclusive supplier of authorized Wabash National, Transcraft, Benson, Great Dane, Fruehauf and Lufkin parts, and offers a complete inventory of DuraPlate®, Morgan, Supreme and Pro-Par products as well.

    Earth’s magnetosphere is shaped by the impact of the solar wind on the Earth’s magnetic field.This forms an obstacle to the flow, diverting it, at an average distance of about 70,000 km (11 Earth radii or Re),[53] producing a bow shock 12,000 km to 15,000 km (1.9 to 2.4 Re) further upstream.The width of the magnetosphere abreast of Earth, is typically 190,000 km (30 Re), and on the night side a long “magnetotail” of stretched field lines extends to great distances (> 200 Re).The high latitude magnetosphere is filled with plasma as the solar wind passes the Earth.The flow of plasma into the magnetosphere increases with additional turbulence, density, and speed in the solar wind.This flow is favored by a southward component of the IMF, which can then directly connect to the high latitude geomagnetic field lines.[54] The flow pattern of magnetospheric plasma is mainly from the magnetotail toward the Earth, around the Earth and back into the solar wind through the magnetopause on the day-side.In addition to moving perpendicular to the Earth’s magnetic field, some magnetospheric plasma travels down along the Earth’s magnetic field lines, gains additional energy and loses it to the atmosphere in the auroral zones.The cusps of the magnetosphere, separating geomagnetic field lines that close through the Earth from those that close remotely allow a small amount of solar wind to directly reach the top of the atmosphere, producing an auroral glow.On 26 February 2008, THEMIS probes were able to determine, for the first time, the triggering event for the onset of magnetospheric substorms.[55] Two of the five probes, positioned approximately one third the distance to the moon, measured events suggesting a magnetic reconnection event 96 seconds prior to auroral intensification.[56]


    The discovery of a 1770 Japanese diary in 2017 depicting auroras above the ancient Japanese capital of Kyoto suggested that the storm may have been 7% larger than the Carrington event, which affected telegraph networks.[67][68]


    One early theory proposed for the acceleration of auroral electrons is based on an assumed static, or quasi-static, electric field creating a uni-directional potential drop.[59] No mention is provided of either the necessary space-charge or equipotential distribution, and these remain to be specified for the notion of acceleration by double layers to be credible.Fundamentally, Poisson’s equation indicates that there can be no configuration of charge resulting in a net potential drop.Inexplicably though, some authors[60][61] still invoke quasi-static parallel electric fields as net accelerators of auroral electrons, citing interpretations of transient observations of fields and particles as supporting this theory as firm fact.In another example,[62] there is little justification given for saying ‘FAST observations demonstrate detailed quantitative agreement between the measured electric potentials and the ion beam energies…., leaving no doubt that parallel potential drops are a dominant source of auroral particle acceleration’.

    COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test: What is it and what does it do?

    The COVID-19 Antigen Rapid test is an immunoassay that is used to detect the rapidly detect (in less than 15 minutes) the presence of SARS-CoV-2 viral antigens.

    What Causes The Northern Lights?

    Short answer? The sun.

    What are the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)?

    The northern lights surprise stargazers by appearing in many forms—from patches or
    scattered clouds, to streamers, arcs, rippling or dancing curtains.The lights move
    and change shape and color.Scientists attribute their vibrant colors to excited gases emitted in Earth’s atmosphere; oxygen gives off the green color of the aurora.

    What causes the colors?

    The colors most often associated with the aurora borealis are pink, green, yellow, blue, violet, and occasionally orange and white.Typically, when the particles collide with oxygen, yellow and green are produced.Interactions with nitrogen produce red, violet, and occasionally blue colors.

    What Is an Aurora?

    If you’re ever near the North or South Pole, you may be in for a very special treat.Frequently there are beautiful light shows in the sky.These lights are called auroras.If you’re near the North Pole, it is called an aurora borealis or northern lights.If you’re near the South Pole, it is called an aurora australis or the southern lights.

    History of Aurora

  • In 1778, Benjamin Franklin theorized in his paper Aurora Borealis, Suppositions and Conjectures towards forming an Hypothesis for its Explanation that an aurora was caused by a concentration of electrical charge in the polar regions intensified by the snow and moisture in the air:[82][83][84]
  • In 1741, Hiorter was able to link large magnetic fluctuations with an aurora being observed overhead.
  • In 2011, NOAA (NCEI and SWPC) developed a real-time version of the OVATION model to forecast the location and intensity of the aurora.
  • In 2016, more than fifty citizen science observations described what was to them an unknown type of aurora which they named “STEVE,” for “Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement.” STEVE is not an aurora but is caused by a 25 km (16 mi) wide ribbon of hot plasma at an altitude of 450 km (280 mi), with a temperature of 6,000 K (5,730 °C; 10,340 °F) and flowing at a speed of 6 km/s (3.7 mi/s) (compared to 10 m/s (33 ft/s) outside the ribbon).[37]
  • In 2017, Hridith spoke in support of the HeForShe Campaign.
  • In 2020, Sudev participated in Black Lives Matter rallies in Denver and Aurora, and expressed solidarity with George Floyd, Elijah McClain, Trayvon Martin, and Breonna Taylor in an Instagram video shortly afterwards.[10]
  • On 4 November 2019, the soundtrack to the Disney film Frozen II was released, with Aurora providing backing vocals on the song “Into the Unknown”.
  • On 9 February 2020, she performed the song onstage as part of the 92nd Academy Awards.
