NASA warns of "the beauty and northern brightness of the beast that can destroy the power lines and electronics on Earth



NASA shared a stunning picture of Northern Illumination in Iceland, but warned that the glow could destroy the power lines and electronics on Earth.

The impressive shooting was made by astronomer Juan Carlos Kassado in 2016, but was selected as an astronomical picture by NASA on Sunday.

The picture captures the polar glow over Lake Thingvallavatn in Iceland.
Kassado wrote on the painting's title: "Admire the beauty, but be afraid of the beast.

"Beauty is above the head of the glow, here in the form of a large green spiral, which is seen between picturesque clouds with bright moon sideways and stars in the background.

"The beast is the wave of charged particles that creates the glow, but one day it can damage civilization."

The natural light display occurs when electrically charged particles of the sun collide with particles in the earth's atmosphere.

What are the northern lights?

The natural light display occurs when electrically charged particles of the sun collide with particles in the earth's atmosphere.

The spectacular view occurs over the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.

Differences in color occur when different types of gas particles collide.

The most common color of color is pale yellow-green, which is created by oxygen molecules.

Normally, it is harmless, but the bosses warn that there is particularly strong sunlight that can release a pulse from a charged particle that can lower the earth's communication network.

This happened only once before 1859 and is called the "Carrington Event" and this has prompted telegraph wires to spark and cause shocks to telegraph operators.

Kassado said that such an event would happen today, "that global grids and electronics will suffer damage on a scale that has not yet been tested."

What is the Carington event?

Solar energy from 1859, also known as the Carinthian event, is a geomagnetic storm.

This happened on 1-2 September 1859.

Stroma causes large abdominal displays, but causes chaos for telegraph systems.
