Scientists can't explain a heavenly phenomenon

The heavenly shine observed at the equator was recognized not as polar, but absolutely new heavenly phenomenon. There’s a new aurora in subpolar skies. Its name is Steve ICAgICAgICA8aWZyYW1lIHNyYz0iLy93d3cueW91dHViZS5jb20vZW1iZWQvbnFGM0F0RWtGRVU/Zj12aWRlb3MmYXV0b3BsYXk9MSIgZnJhbWVib3JkZXI9IjAiCiAgICAgICAgICAgICAgICBhbGxvd2Z1bGxzY3JlZW4 PC9pZnJhbWU CiAgICAgICAg the Unusual atmospheric occurrence called by Steve is similar to a polar light, but that isn't, reports the Science Alert edition. The nature of the thin shining strips up to one thousand kilometers long appearing in the sky still should be found out. So far scientists recognized that it is not Aurora Borealis, or a polar light. The polar light can be observed almost daily, but only near Earth poles. Stiva saw and it is quite close to the equator, but they appear only several times a year. The phenomenon has been noticed long ago, but the first scientific work about it is published only in 2018. Strips called STEVE – Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement, that is "strong increase in speed of thermal radiation". The exact nature of a phenomenon still remains to the unknown, but according to the statement of scientists, to emergence of stiv give absolutely other processes, than in a case with a polar light. They still should be found out. Photo: to Share: video sky polar light luminescence shine equator phenomenon
