Neither the aurora nor aliens were responsible for the strange glow.
A particular pink glow was observed in the eastern part of Yorkshire, England, reports A BBC. Many people thought they were seeing the northern lights, perhaps signs of alien technology, but behind the glow there was a less exciting factor.
The company was responsible for the lights.
Nick DenhamAccording to the company’s director, plants are grown on its premises using LED lights.
The company is the UK’s largest plant propagator, growing small, transportable seedlings from seed to sell to farmers. Plant Raisers has been operating in Howden for many years, away from driving.
“Because of the energy crisis, we have had to invest heavily in LEDs,” Denham said. As a result, the facility no longer emits white light, but rather pink light. Incidentally, lighting is used to artificially manipulate the times of day to promote growth.
Robbie Hilson The local amateur astronomer was very surprised to see the glow at first. It was not believed that this phenomenon was the result of light pollution resulting from the greenhouse.
By the way, the pink light is only visible on certain evenings. The reason for this is that at a certain outside temperature, the curtain in the greenhouse is drawn.
