- a timelapse short by Stian Rekdal - http://www.stianrekdal.com -

The northern lights, or Aurora Borealis / Australis, are the
visual manifestation of the sun's interaction with the earth
and it's magnetic field. When high speed particles escape
the sun, usually because of a coronal mass ejection or
solar wind, some of them hit the earth's magnetosphere.
The particles crash with those of our atmosphere and emit
light in the process. The color of the light depends on how
high in earth's atmosphere the particles interact.
Photographing them can be a challenge because of their
unpredictable nature. This video is a short selection of
my favourite shots recorded in the winter of 2013/2014 at
locations in Norway and Iceland.

The person in the shots at 1:18 - 1:26 is Robert Selfors
