A Stunning Time Lapse of the Aurora Borealis

Questionable choice of music aside, Terje Sorgjerd’s aurora video is pretty damn beautiful.

I spent a week capturing one of the biggest aurora borealis shows in recent years.

Shot in and around Kirkenes and Pas National Park bordering Russia, at 70 degree north and 30 degrees east. Temperatures around -25 Celsius. Good fun.
