Data Examples

Auroral images from Resolute Bay, Canada Auroral images from Resolute Bay, Canada taken using at all-sky field of view lens module, with no filter, just imaging in white light. The images were taken at 31 frames per second, but are displayed at 1 images per second. This shows a North-South aligned polar cap auroral arc which lasted for approximately 10 minutes.
Image sequence of a substorm onset that occurred over Poker Flat, AK. Image sequence of a substorm onset that occurred over Poker Flat, AK. These data were taken using the 19 degree field of view module, with 4x4 binning of a 760 x 760 pixel subframe which results in a 190 x 190 pixel image at 41 Hz frame rate. The 427.8 nm filter was used to image these dynamic auroral features.
Auroral images from Sondrestrom, Greenland Auroral images from Sondrestrom, Greenland taken using at all-sky field of view lens module, with no filter, just imaging in white light. The images were taken at 31 frames per second, but are displayed at 1 images per second. This shows an auroral poleward boundary intensification with tall rays in the magnetic zenith.
Meteor observed using the 8 degree field of view module Meteor observed using the 8 degree field of view module, with 4x4 binning of a 760 x 760 pixel subframe which results in a 190 x 190 pixel image. This give a fairly high frame rate of 41 Hz. The meteor leaves behind a visible trail which lasts for approximately 1 second. Using a high frame rate, the perpendicular projection of the meteor velocity can be accurately determined. The elongation of the meteor head is due to the finite exposure time of each frame.
Meteor observed from Rio Grande, Argentina Meteor observed from Rio Grande, Argentina using the 19 degree field of view module, with 4x4 binning of a 760 x 760 pixel subframe which results in a 190 x 190 pixel image. This give a frame rate of 41 Hz.
Example of pulsating aurora from Poker Flat, AK Example of pulsating aurora from Poker Flat, AK Example of pulsating aurora from Poker Flat, AK, imaged using the all-sky lens modules. These data were taken with a 3.3 Hz frame rate. One imager was equipped with a 557.7 nm filter and the other one with a 427.8 nm filter. This sequence covers a time period of 5 minutes and plays over 33 seconds.
Image sequence of flickering aurora that occurred over Poker Flat, AK. Image sequence of flickering aurora that occurred over Poker Flat, AK. These data were taken using the 19 degree field of view module, with 4x4 binning of a 760 x 760 pixel subframe which results in a 190 x 190 pixel image at 41 Hz frame rate. The 670.0 nm filter was used to image these auroral structures.
Composite movie, constructed using data from 3 imagers that were operated simultaneously Composite movie, constructed using data from 3 imagers that were operated simultaneously, using broadband red, green and blue filters. Each one was equipped with the 19 degree field of view module. The imagers were running at 760x760 pixels at 11 Hz frame rate. This shows dynamic auroral structures in the magnetic zenith during a substorm onset. This sequence covers 30 seconds of data, displayed over 10 seconds.
