Aurora - meet STEVE, STEVE - meet Aurora. On the 18th March 2018 during an amazing show of the Northern Lights, this pillar of light was seen quite clearly to the west and on the periphery of the Aurora light. STEVE is an acronym for 'Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement'. STEVE is a fairly rare phenomenon and is still being investigated because not much is known about it. This is the second or third time I've seen STEVE but the first time I've photographed it. . . .
