Meanwhile, a bit closer to our beds:
Picture from the ISS spacestation of the Northern Light caused by the powerful 23 January 2012 Solarflare. This great picture was made by Belgian astronaut Andre Kuipers.

Thank you very much for the image, "EekTheMan", and welcome to the discussion boards.

To make it easier for readers to access the image you have indicated, I have created a link for it here. It is usually better to use the "BBCode tages to format your text", which you could find to the left of the field where you edit your post.

Dear "EekTheMan",

Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging comments. I am very glad that these posts are of use to you and to other community members. I am currently thinking of ways to extend the scope of the posts so that more cosmology related information will be available here at C@H.

Best wishes,

Faik
