Abstract : There are many reports of auroral sightings, in Korea during the period AD 1507-1747. On the basis of all their characteristics as reduced from the descriptions of these reports and from several statistical analyses, we believe that most of them were not usual auroras, but most probably were so-called Stable Auroral Red arcs.
