Polar/IMAGE Study of Auroral Conjugacy featured at Fall AGU Mtg. Press Conference
Polar and IMAGE mission coordination permitted unprecedented full simultaneous view of boreal and austral auroras during storm conditions.
Conjugacy of features shows that the storm aurora is produced internal to the magnetosphere and not by direct solar wind entry (would be anti-conjugate).
