Glowing Reports Are Coming In From The Aurora Zone

Posted: Updated:

NBCNEWS.COM - Photographers in northern latitudes are reveling in an early dose of auroral glow — and the rest of us can bask in their reflected glory. 

"Still can't believe we had such auroras already in August!" Finland's Thomas Kast wrote on his Facebook page, which features his photos of the northern lights.

In Sweden, Göran Strand jumped into his car and headed for the wilderness to catch the show on Aug. 28. "The entire sky was filled with aurora," he wrote on his blog.

The spectacle is just getting started: Over the Labor Day weekend, an upsurge in geomagnetic activity could produce heightened auroral displays in high latitudes, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Center. And the northern lights traditionally get better as the nights lengthen, leading up to the equinox on Sept. 22.
