When Swarm met Steve
21 April 2017
Thanks to social media and the power of citizen scientists chasing the northern lights, a new feature was discovered recently. Nobody knew what this strange ribbon of purple light was, so … it was called Steve.
ESA's Swarm magnetic field mission has now also met Steve and is helping to understand the nature of this new-found feature.
