A powerful geomagnetic storm creates extreme auroras in the skies above Abisko National Park in Sweden. This video was shot in three hours by Lights Over Lapland photographer Chad Blakley, and shows 8 photographers participating in Lights Over Lapland's aurora borealis photo expedition.

    So did this "storm" do anything more than pretty special effects in the night sky? I was expecting more drama. I am a bit disappointed to be honest.

    Tonight on Nightly News: Will the world as we know it come to an end?? Stay tuned, we'll be right back after these messages!!

    Seriously, where are all the burned out satellites? The internet didn't even blink! Who is responsible for spreading all this nonsense? Or are we all going to die from skin cancer five or ten years from now?

    I gots to know, please!! :(

    I for one is happy that the solar storms didn't cause any problems. Have had enough with the wind storms causing power outages this winter.

    I couldn't live in an area plagued by power outages. I can cope with brief interruptions caused by thunder storms, but not complete outages that last for hours. I feel for you. :(

    If only possible I will never live in a place where that can be the case. :p

    In my experience, that's not very fun. ;)

    I try not to stay in such places, not even for laughs. ;)

    It's all fun and games until the power goes out. :D I love my creature comforts.
