October 2003

October 2003 This aurora event occurred October 30, 2003. It was spawned by a pair of powerful solar flares: an X17.2 on October 28th followed by an X10 on the 29th. This was certainly the most brilliant display I have ever witnessed.
The largest X-Ray flare ever recorded occurred only a few days later on November 4th. I wasn't able to observe anything related to that flare.
