Jacobs ladder STEVE

Jacob’s ladder or STEVE’s ladder?

Jacobs ladder, Picket Fence aurora, STEVE’s ladders or Kristian Birkeland’s plasma stairways to the electromagnetic heavens?

Jacobs ladder STEVES

Depending on your point of view, literally, the green picket fence type STEVE might be interpreted or seen as a ladder or stairway above you and going up to heaven.

Jacobs ladder STEVE

Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep.

He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.
Genesis 28:10-12

STEVE Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement

How would you describe this visual phenomenon to others?

Jacobs ladder STEVE

STEVE often, although not always, is observed above a green, “picket-fence” aurora. Although the picket-fence aurora is created through precipitation of electrons, they appear outside the auroral oval and so their formation is different from traditional aurora. The study also showed these phenomena appear in both hemispheres simultaneously. Sightings of picket-fence aurora have been made without observations of STEVE.

The green emissions seem to be related to eddies in the supersonic flow of charged particles, similar to the eddies seen in a river, which move more slowly than the other water around them. The green bars in the picket fence are moving more slowly than the structures in the purple emissions, and some scientists have speculated they could be caused by turbulence in the charged particles from space.

Jacobs ladders or STEVEs ladders?

Are STEVEs (plasma filaments known as Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancements) a variation of SAID’s (Sub-Auroral Ion Drift) and Birkeland currents?

What in mythology, folklore, Bible and other religious stories, might be describing similar ionised gas structures in ancient skies?

Picket fence aurora or plasma filament structures?

picket fence aurora

Auroral activity isn’t unheard of here in September but this event, above a Kp 3 level, was totally unexpected. I’ve never previously seen anything close to the intensity of the picket fence ray features. They lasted for a solid 45 minutes with light rays overhead and to the south.
