Ionosphere Total Electron Content - November 2003

This movie displays plume formation for a space weather event in November 2003. In this visualization, the observer is fixed between the Sun and the Earth (slightly off the center line for better perspective). Blue represents low ionospheric electron counts, dark red is high electron counts.
