Ancient History

For traveling fashion photographer and stylist Trevor Stuurman (@trevor_stuurman), home is wherever the Wi-Fi connects. Whether he’s styling a shoot in South Africa or speaking on a panel in Rwanda, he’s an advocate for African fashion and culture. “I support the local fashion industry in various ways, such as wearing local, shooting local and making a noise about our local talent,” Trevor, who is based in Johannesburg, says. To people who imagine the continent as a nascent location for fashion, Trevor says it’s time to catch up: “Africa is now! We are here, educated, empowered and highly relevant. We are awakening to our own beauty and celebrating that every day.” Photo by @trevor_stuurman

On the night of Oct. 8, a photographer in Harstad, Norway captured this image of the dancing northern lights. Auroras are created when fast-moving, magnetic solar material strikes Earth's magnetic bubble, the magnetosphere. This collision rattles the magnetosphere in an event called a geomagnetic storm, sending trapped charged particles zooming down magnetic field lines towards the atmosphere, where they collide brilliantly with molecules in the air, creating auroras. Though many geomagnetic storms are associated with clouds of solar material that explode from the sun in an event called a coronal mass ejection, or CME, this storm was caused by an especially fast stream of solar wind. "Geomagnetic storms caused by high-speed solar wind streams aren't uncommon," said Leila Mays, a space physicist at our Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. "Near solar minimum-when solar activity like CMEs are less frequent-these fast streams are actually the most common cause of geomagnetic storms that create auroras."
