Professor Gro van der Meeren at the Institute of Marine Research in Nordnes, Norway, is one of the lead researchers trying to gather more information about the balls.

Due to recent attention in local media, van der Meeren has received more photos of the balls from divers.(….)

Aurora tour guide Tony Bateman of northern Finland was indoors, warming up between auroras, when his surroundings began to vibrate.

“There was a huge bang and the cottage shook violently,” he reports. “At first I thought it was an earthquake.

Or maybe a tree fell on the cottage roof! I walked outside and inspected the trees. Everything looked okay.” A quick replay of his aurora webcam solved the mystery. “It was an incredible meteor,” he says.

Surely, a show that will remain in my memory, a week ago, on November 7th. Between fast moving clouds, rain showers which lasted no more than two or three minutes, this fantastic moonbow appeared, when the almost Full Moon managed to break the clouds….(..)

Space weather forecasters predicted a minor geomagnetic storm on Nov. 7th.

It turned out to be much stronger. As night fell across North America, auroras spilled across the Canadian border into more than a dozen US states.

Jack Webb photographed these red columns towering over Wapiti, Wyoming.

“At this latitude (+44 N) it takes a pretty good geomagnetic storm to get above it.”

Auroras were sighted in Alaska,Vermont, New York, Wyoming, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and–believe it or not–Nebraska!!!!

This is the last known photo of Nicola Tesla.

On 7th January 1943, Tesla died alone in the New Yorker Hotel.

The inventor, physicist, and futurist was best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.

By the end of his brilliant and tortured life, he was penniless and had become a vegetarian living on only milk, bread, honey, and vegetable juices.

Tesla spent days in a park surrounded by the creatures that mattered most to him—pigeons—and his sleepless nights working over mathematical equations and scientific problems in his head. (Source: Vintage Everyday)
