Northern Lights Over Norway

Aurora Borealis timelapse HD - Tromsø 2010 from Tor Even Mathisen on Vimeo.

Yes, this is really what the northern lights look like -- magical, beautiful, breathtaking. And you don't need the music to appreciate them ... the silence of a cold night is background enough to inspire awe of the heavens. At home here, the sight is often enhanced by the crying of coyotes in the fields nearby.


  1. So gorgeous! I have friends who have an entire photographic series from the northern lights. Amazing!

  2. I think it was 1990 or maybe 1991 the only time I saw Northern Lights like those. Driving between Glen and Ivan's farm when we were there for a family reunion. We got out of the car and lay on our backs on the hood to watch. Just us and 4 billion mosquitoes. Bliss.

  3. I have goosebumps. It reminds me of one late Christmas Eve in Michigan. When we arrived home, we looked up in the sky and saw magic. The kids were with us, we just stood in the driveway with our mouthes agape in wonder of the beauty.
    Thank you for sharing.
