STEVEs bear a striking resemblance to auroras, but with some important differences. As noted, they look like narrow ribbons in the night sky, featuring vibrant purple and white hues. They seem to run from east to west, and they’re located closer to the equator than typical auroras. Also, auroras are visible on practically every night in regions where they’re normally seen, but the thin light ribbons from STEVE are only seen a few times each year.
