Universal Vortical Singularity enlightenment on polar aurora

Based on the UVS model, a polar aurora is manifested by an intensified nested spheroidal vortex in the thermosphere.
.


The cognitive paradox that renders polar aurora as a mysterious phenomenon, was thus resolved with its underlying structure and mechanism illustrated.

See a UVS topic on "The geometric structure of magnetosphere" that elaborates on the nested torus structure of a nested electromagnetic polar vortex pair.

Evidently, the below images show aurorae are associated with various types of vortex in different shapes and sizes, and are directly or indirectly impelled by the nested polar vortex of thermosphere with the nested Earth's magnetic field; an aurora is induced and demarcated by its underlying nested plasmatic vortex.

The grounds for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying structure and mechanism of aurora as illustrated by its hypothetical construct based on the UVS model, elucidated its delusional observation that has been rendering it as a mysterious phenomenon. Thus, its cognitive paradox was simply dispersed, and all the related natural phenomena were then qualitatively analysed in the conceptual frameworks of UVS by inductive reasoning for explicating on their empirical evidence to establish their qualitative predictions with abductive reasoning.

See UVS topics on "The UVS' philosophy of science" and "Overviews of UVS" that elaborate on the methodology for the evaluations of natural phenomena.

Based on unisonal vortex mechanism, the phenomenon of polar aurora is caused by the nested polar vortex and its nested satellite vortex of thermosphere. Heuristically, its magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) dynamo effect would result the rarefied atmospheric particles in the vortex column to be ionized, electrically charged and vortically forms as glowing plasma on the wall of its nested vortex column.

Note: A MHD dynamo has three requirements - a conducting viscous matter, rotation, and convection.

From the UVS perspective, the phenomena of large electric currents and magnetic storm are caused by the magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) dynamo effect of a spinning vortex wall that charges atomic particles in the atmosphere; these naturally generated electric currents energized atoms to become ionized.

UVS predicates that the electromagnetic storm in the presence of an aurora is caused by the intensified vortical effect of its underlying atmospheric vortex.

The fact that a polar aurora is manifested by its nested polar vortex of thermosphere, as can be empirically observed with its underlying structure and mechanism illustrated, is the qualitative proof that a polar aurora is induced to manifest by a vortically intensified polar vortex.

From the UVS perspective, although solar flare would contribute to the intensity of the polar vortex pair on Earth by perturbing it with torque-induced precession, polar aurorae glow is not caused by the charged particle from the solar flare. The vortical interactions of an underlying nested polar vortex intensified with the oncoming solar flare, is the primary cause for the plasma glow.

Evidently, solar flares and solar winds eject streams of electron and proton as charged particles, while aurora on Earth is mainly the glow of ionized oxygen atoms.

The two luminous colors of excited atomic oxygen on most polar aurora, is a greenish glow at a wavelength of 557.7 nm, and the dark-red glow at a wavelength of 630.0 nm.

From the UVS perspective, the polar aurorae of Jupiter and Saturn were also caused by the dynamo effect of polar vortices, and evidently these aurorae on the farther away planets were not caused by solar flare. The plasma glows were caused by excited atomic hydrogen as a result of the dynamo effect of the polar vortices that generates electric glow discharge.

Polar aurorae on Saturn

In the UVS worldview, a plasmatic polar vortex on thermosphere can be triggered and affected by focused precession effect from aligned planets in a Solar System alignment effect.

From the UVS perspective, the planetary alignment of Jupiter and Saturn on an approximate 11 years period with Sun and Earth, would synchronize the activities for polar vortex on Earth with solar activities such as sunspot on Sun.

Aligned Sun, Earth, Moon, Jupiter and Saturn

See UVS topics on "Polar aurorae of gas giants" that illustrates polar aurorae are induced and demarcated by their underlying plasmatic polar vortex pair, "The structures of planetary nebulae" that illustrates the glowing atmospheres on stars that apparently were caused by the nested polar vortex pairs of their diffused star, "The coma, gas and dust tails of comet", and "Cosmic evolution of stars and galaxies" that elaborates on numerous mysterious glowing vortical phenomena.

Disclaimers: The treatise of Universal Vortical Singularity (UVS) in its epistemological paradigm shift, is fundamentally unconventional. Its hypotheses based on the unheard-of UVS model, are bounded to have shortcomings, loose ends, and errors. Many details and assumptions of its propositions established in the conceptual frameworks of UVS, have yet to be further researched, probed, evaluated, validated, or proven. Its implicit explanations are for casual understanding of the topics presented in the UVS worldview, and any term or statement if offensive in any manner or whatsoever is most regretted. Links to other sites do not imply endorsement of their contents; apply appropriate discretion whenever necessary. Inevitably for whatsoever reasons, some viewing devices at times could experience data corruption for text, disorganized content layouts, missing images, failed animations, and some external links might have had ceased to exist. The presentations of the web pages are not friendly to small mobile devices, it is therefore recommended to accessed and view the UVS contents with a system device that has a larger screen, such as personal computer, android tablet, or iPad. For the best experience to explore UVS, it is better to use a MS Windows based PC or device using Internet Explorer or Firefox installed with Java that works for its interactive applets.
