(Scandinavian Twin Auroral Radar Experiment)

The Scandinavian Twin Auroral Radar Experiment (STARE) consists of two coherent radar stations located in
Midtsandan in Norway(63.6667 lat, 10.73 lon), and in Hankasalmi in Finland(62.3047 lat, 26.6494 lon). Stare measures the electron flow (~ electric field) pattern and its dynamics with good spatial and temporal resolution over a large
area (~ 200 000 km^2) of the auroral zone in Northern Scandinavia along eight antenna lobes.
The Experiment provides a window on to the interaction between our planet and the solar wind.  
STARE is part of the MIRACLE ground-based network which contains magnetometers, all-sky cameras, and STARE.
Using some great strategic public relations this Project lets people see its progression step by step.
