    Default Where do the flux lines of Earth's magnetic field come out of the ground?



    Where do the flux lines of Earth's magnetic field come out of the ground? Is there anything special there? Can their existence be observed or demonstrated in person?

    Default Where magnetic flux and solar particle enter the earth.

    Maybe I am out of my league, but if you look into the sky (75 deg north), especially at solar particle "traffic jam" times(winter begin/winter end) because of the alignment of the earths poles, you can see where the earths commutator ring (aural ring,,aurora borealis) is. So if I took another giant step, I would have to say that no, physically you will not notice the anaomaly of where these concentrations of magnetis lines of flux enter the ground.. Further to this you could notice the effect of the magnetic flux lines by rotating a large metalic disc through a copper coil (the disc must be at least 29.4 meters across..and spun to break through the lines of flux.
    (levels of radiation probably also high)
    Just guessing though..
