Yes, when the player builds an appropriate frame and activates it with water bucket
The Aether Portal is a portal which leads to the Aether. The frame is constructed similarly to Nether portals, but is instead created with glowstone. To activate the portal, simply pour a water bucket on the inside (much like flint and steel with Nether portals). The portal block is blue instead of the purple of the Nether Portal. Mobs, boats, and minecarts cannot pass through Aether Portals; Aether Portals cannot intersect with each other. Should the portal spawn in midair, two glowstone blocks will spawn on each side for the player to stand on. It can only be constructed in the Aether mod. Otherwise, it will not activate. The portal can also break like a Nether portal, which makes the portal unusable. To get the materials required to make a portal, you have to go to the Nether to get glowstone. The Aether portal is basically the opposite of the Nether portal, as glowstone is the brightest block, and obsidian is the darkest.
To make the Aether Portal you must have glowstone which is made from glowstone dust. To make an Aether Portal, you must have at least 10 glowstone blocks; 14 glowstone blocks if you want the corners, or 18 if you want the standing place shown with the picture above.
To create an Aether portal, make a base of 4 blocks side by side (or 2, if you leave out the corners). On the edge of both, stack up four glowstone, then close your rectangle. Finally, pour water inside it.
To make the pathway, you just put 2 glowstone blocks on each side of the portal.
