  1. Don,
    By “swish” if you are asking do they make noise, there is mixed opinions on that.

    The scientists will tell you that they occur too far up in the magnetosphere where there is no air for the sound to travel through.

    Some people will relate they have heard them during very active displays and they can make the sound change by opening and closing their mouth.

    It is a well documented fact that active displays can induce electrical currents in lengthy metal structures such as pipelines, railroad tracks, and electrical transmission lines. Sometimes the current can be strong enough to trip a circuit breaker.

    If you are asking do they move and dance. The answer is most definitely yes. The March 7 and 9 displays were very rapid moving and it can be difficult to track the lights with the camera.

  2. I’ve seen a lot of Northern Lights, but never quite like that! Do they swish?? Don’t see them many times in a lifetime.
