On http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora_(astronomy [Broken]), about 1/2-way down the page, there is an image of, quote, "Aurora australis (September 11, 2005) as captured by NASA's IMAGE satellite, digitally overlaid onto the The Blue Marble composite image." Next to it, there is a rolling video of, quote, "An animation created using the satellite data." My questions are, “Why does the light of the aurora seem to be attracted, or connected, to the area near that spot?”, and “what is the spot?”. [edit by Ivan: inappropriate references deleted] My own determination is that the video on Wikipedia shows the light of the aurora seeming to come down next to the dark spot to the ground near the dark spot’s right, especially towards the last part of the video. Maybe it’s just the way I’m looking at it. It’s hard to tell what the depth of the aurora is. The Hollow Earthers are showing only a fragment of the video to deceive people into thinking the light of the aurora is coming up from the dark spot. I don’t know what the dark spot is, but it looks to me like part of the sea surrounded by a sheet of ice connected to the continent. I might be wrong. I don’t know the geography. The image in the photo is a composite image, so it may be different from a regular photo. Again, why does the light of the aurora seem to be attracted to the area near the spot, and what is the spot?
