Earth is a natural radio. Plasma waves coursing through the magnetosphere produce a symphony of “tweeks,” “whistlers” and “sferics.”
On March 17th, the auroral chorus symphony reached fever pitch and was recorded as far south as Texas! Yes, this was an intense geomagnetic storm!
Now click on the image below to listen to the chorus:
