Valentine’s Day is near. But if you have not yet found the perfect gift, don’t worry. This news report suggests a last-minute option that will make up for everything.
To encourage visiting Arctic Europe, the marketing initiative department is giving people the chance to name the northern lights after someone they love for Valentine’s Day.
Based upon “This Is Arctic”, the idea was to simply give names to northern light storms exactly how the hurricanes are named.
The company said so that “Space Weather Prediction Centre receives data on solar activity such as solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and high-speed solar wind. When the data shows a signal that surpasses a certain level, the aurora will be named.”
Since this plan was set and announced, the Naming Auroras campaign received nearly 2000 name suggestions from everywhere. However, just two names have been picked based on their heart-warming metaphors. “Aurora Denise” is the first. This name came with a letter describing Denise: “An exceptional woman’ who’d had a lifelong dream to see the northern lights but passed away November 21, 2019, without ever witnessing northern lights live.” This Aurora was visible from November 21 – 23. “Aurora Ellen” is the second Aurora visible from January 20 – 22. Ellen’s loved ones said that She celebrated her 100th birthday in December. She is from the west coast of Ireland and enjoys sitting in her conservatory observing the stars.
