~e; EM lightstorms

heard there may be an EM-geomagnetic shift close to
occuring yet have not found the link, it was in a UK
paper, about the geomagnetic poles shifting, something
that happens every hundred or so years, which it may
be relevant to note, there are 2 sets of 'poles', the
shifting poles and the absolute poles. do not know a
lot about the differences, one may be land-based, the
other, magnetically based. in any case, in searching
for the news story found a site which has an interesting
approach to the (northern/southern) lights also known
as the aurora borealis. what is interesting is that the
effects (which look like plasma displays gone hyperspeed
lava-lamp-like) happen with particles from the sun or the
solar system hitting the particle fields (van allen belts)
which protect the earth from some of these deadly rays. it
may be dust, or whatnot, that gets illuminated in various
colorshows of these lightstorms. to experience one is to
experience one only, as they are so different. have only
seen a few, but they are spectacular events to see/feel.
so here's a link, which if you goto it, look at the way
the descriptors of the storms are labled:
ie: Types of activity observed: (Discrete Arcs) (Rays)
(Diffuse Glows) (Discrete Arcs) (Rays) (Curtains) (Zenithal) (Color-Varying)
(Localized Pulsations) (Wave-like Pulsations) (Color-Varying) etc.
