Aurora Borealis and HAARP

Published : Saturday 11 May 2024

The Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights is an atmospheric light show phenomena, but did you know HAARP can create it artificially ...

The Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, is a natural light display that predominantly occurs in high-latitude regions around the Arctic Circle. It’s caused by the interaction between charged particles from the sun and the Earth’s magnetic field.

HAARP stands for High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. It’s a research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the University of Alaska. The program’s main facility is located near Gakona, Alaska.

HAARPs primary purpose is reportedly to study the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, a region of the Earth’s upper atmosphere that plays a crucial role in radio communications and satellite operations. The facility consists of a high-power transmitter and an array of antennas that can emit radio waves into the ionosphere.

Artificial Aurora Produced by HAARP

There have been a variety of studies published as a result of HAARP, notably “Artificial Aurora Produced by HAARP” in the Journal of Geophysical Research in April 2019.

In their conclusion, they state, “We present results from the 12 March 2013 HAARP experiment, where the ionosphere was heated with X-mode HF waves, and bright luminous spots in the ionosphere were observed together with disturbances of the magnetic field on the ground.”

Then, in November of 2023, there was a four-day period of testing where lights were expected to be observed in the Alaskan sky, as a result of the research experiment.

Interesting timing

On May 10th 2024 we were treated to a spectacular display of the Aurora Borealis, the likes of which I cannot recall in my lifetime, and across parts of the world where it would typically be very unusual to see it. While many have said it is due to unusual solar activity, an alternative theory suggests it may be related to HAARP experimentation.

This alternative explanation is perhaps plausible. We know from previous experiments it is possible to some degree using HAARP technology. There are now facilities around the world including Alaska, Norway, Russia and Peru, and technology continually advances.

Furthermore, in early May 2024 a press release was issued notifying of a HAARP experiment taking place between the 8th and 10th of May. The press release allows scientists and enthusiasts to engage with the experiment, and it found its way into a number of communities and publications.

The timing is certainly interesting. Given that the display we witnessed came to a climax on the final day of experimenting and did seem not seem to continue the following evening, it does seem to correlate.

Historically HAARP was dismissed as a “conspiracy theory” and mainstream media does get itself wedded to these narratives and not let go, even when reputable scientists dispute them.

It was certainly an unusual display, and quite the coincidence if nothing else. I suspect over time there will be further clarity.


Further to all the furore around the event and the timing of HAARP experiments, a press release was put out by University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute.

β€œWe have been responding to many inquiries from the media and the public,” Matthews said. β€œThe HAARP scientific experiments were in no way linked to the solar storm or high auroral activity seen around the globe.”

“The May HAARP campaign was scheduled about a month and a half before the geomagnetic storm. The timing was purely coincidental; geomagnetic storms are unpredictable, with lead times before a solar event is detected from Earth measured in minutes, not months.”
