August Auroras

July was windy and cloudy topped with little geomagnetic activity, but August is a different story. Space Weather.com has been raving about the sunspots that are starting to pop up.

Here are some recent photos taken by the South Pole Telescope guru J. Dana Hrubes. To see his multi-year portfolio and more info on South Pole go here:
