The mysterious heavenly phenomenon was inexplicable


Scientists from the USA and Canada have found out that the unusual atmospheric occurrence nicknamed the amateur researchers who have opened it Steve isn't a polar light, despite similarity. The exact nature of a phenomenon still remains to the unknown. The Science Alert edition reports about it. Steve has been for the first time noticed by enthusiasts from the Alberta Aurora Chasers organization who are engaged in observations of a polar light. They have found rather narrow tapes of green and violet light differing from the known kinds of Aurora Borealis. This atmospheric phenomenon can stretch for hundreds or thousands of kilometers, and width of "tape" reaches 25-30 kilometers. Originally was considered that Steve itself is a rare species of a polar light. However in new scientific work scientists have shown that Steve has other nature. The usual polar light is created through interaction of the solar wind consisting of charged particles (protons and electrons) with molecules of the terrestrial atmosphere. However on March 28, 2008, when the phenomenon, the orbital satellite belonging to National administration of oceanic and atmospheric researches (NOAA) was observed I haven't registered a stream of charged particles. It means that some other mechanisms are the cause of Steve. Scientists plan to continue researches and to check whether there can be a phenomenon because of the streams consisting of fast ions and electrons with high energy in an ionosphere.
