On Friday night, NASA launched two rockets from a spaceport in Norway as part of an experiment to interact with the Northern Lights. The rockets, from the AZURE mission, released visible gases that illuminated the aurora borealis, and created a surreal display as seen in the time-lapse videos above and below. Learn more about the experiment at Ars Technica.
Time-lapse of @nasa AZURE mission launching 2 sounding rockets from @AndoyaSpace about 4 hours ago. They created glowing clouds (background is real aurora) to study and track the flow of particles in the ionosphere @NASA_Wallops @TamithaSkov @StormHour @chunder10 @B_Ubiquitous pic.twitter.com/sFiCCP9LdY— Adrien Mauduit (@ADphotography24) April 6, 2019
