Lyudmila E. Venderovich writes to the Commission on the:

Somewhere in the middle of September 1941, during the most critical days for Leningrad, those on duty on the roofs observed a phenomenon that was perceived as the Northern lights (I myself did not see it, I cannot describe it). I remember everyone in the city was talking about it and rejoicing, interpreting this lethargy as a good omen: "We are northern Palmyra: the Northern lights have dawned on us." However, one military man refuted the astronomical version by saying that the sky was shining not in the north, but in the southwest and assured that the phenomenon was German light tricks, with the aim of a psychic attack, but the fascist optics did not achieve the frightening intensity of the glow. If this glow really took place, it should have been seen by air surveillance posts and recorded, describing in detail.

Divided into:

The Aurora (Northern lights)

Glow (luminescence) of the upper layers of the atmospheres of the planets with the magnetosphere due to their interaction with charged particles of the solar wind.

In a very limited area of the top of atmosphere radiance can be caused by low energy charged particles of solar wind entering the polar ionosphere over the North and South polar Caspi. In the Northern hemisphere, the cusp auroras can be observed over Svalbard caribou watch.
