Doubt it. Looks like some undergrads playing in the lab with a light bulb and long exposure. Kids!

Yeah, i don't get this. Looks to be a select rendering of some of the assumed field lines. I'd rather see the interaction with those metal frames.

NASA's Space Sciences Laboratory have made them visible as "animated photographs," using sound-controlled CGI and 3D compositing

So it's not as if you'd see those "animations" in real life. Seems that video is sent through an animation generator that trys to predict what the fields would be and then colors them?
