MAGIC MIDNIGHT OVER EMYVALE

13 March 2016 No Comments by The Northern Standard

This spectacular view of the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights was supplied to us by Gabriel Murphy, who took the picture in Emyvale on Sunday night last.  The celestial phenomenon, which occurs when electrically charged particles from the Sun enter the Earth’s atmosphere, was in its full splendour in the night sky over the weekend.  The hour when the aurora is often best seen has given rise to the description “magic midnight”.
