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. Available in Digital Cinema 4k.

        Smithsonian In Motion Video Contest Viewer's Choice award winner 2013 "North Country Dreamland" A northern Michigan celestial dark sky exposition www.facebook.com/LakeSuperiorPhoto video use, future video projects, contact mqtphoto@aol.com selected fine art prints from video: http://lakesuperiorphoto.photoshelter.com/gallery/North-Country-Dreamland/G0000zFbOIaNsOiQ/ photo video/edit: Shawn Malone cameras used: Canon 5d, 5dMII and 5dMIII bodies and multiple wide angle lenses Music: David Helpling/Jon Jenkins track titled, "Lifted" from the album "The Crossing contact: http://www.spottedpecarry.com Thanks for watching and hope you enjoy! Although not new to time lapse, this video is my first larger scale time lapse compilation cut down to over 10k photo frames equaling 33 scenes of various night sky events from Northern Michigan 2012. It took a year to shoot in many cold nights and took a lot of coffee, a bit tenacity and persistence to get this into a form of coherent electrified cosmic goodness. Night sky-capes include multiple northern lights scenes, meteor showers, nebulae, planets, including Venus and Jupiter setting from Spring 2012, constellations, the milky way, comet Pan-Starrs, night-scapes over both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. Thought I might mention some of the more interesting wildlife encounters during the photo gathering- 1.sparring moose on Isle Royale under a pitch black sky after wrapping the Isle Royale Tobin Harbor airglow / northern lights opening scene at 3am in the morning, with their thunderous antlers clashing with fear inducing power that could be felt in the knashing soundwaves echoing in the hills, (and I had to hike a two mile 'deer path' back to my shelter in the direction of those moose, I survived to tell the tale without getting pancaked) 2. the howl of wolves in the eastern UP piercing the freezing air under a calm full moon sky 3.a particularly persistent beaver on an inland lake in the Hiawatha National Forest, determined to be in just about every frame with a methodically spaced tail slap on an otherwise beautifully FLAT CALM star reflected lake- sooo even though the star reflection sequence is blown by this beaver with a 'tude, the scene is included anyway as a humorous memory 4. the blue heron fishing for a midnight snack by auroral light at the mouth of Sand River and Lake Superior- if only I would have not moved, this heron would have walked the river bank thru the entire frame.. Rare pairings caught on camera include ribbons of aurora above a full moon fogbow on the horizon of Lake Superior, the aurora and an isolated singular lightning storm cloud over Lake Superior, and the aurora and Milky Way in several scenes including Copper Harbor, Marquette, Isle Royale, Pictured Rocks, and Eagle Harbor Lighthouse. There are also a couple sequences of rare magenta/red aurora that I will never tire of. 3:45, 4:26 Blue Heron paused at 00:57 before I accidentally scared him away 00:15 incredible color spectrum of airglow and aurora- Isle Royale with big dipper reflection 1:54 lightning and aurora in July 2:13 Meteor Shower 2:40- beaver tail slap 2:54 Lake Superior Ice currents 3:36- featured on NBC Nightly News April 2012 5:07- Venus, Jupiter setting 5:42-PanStarrs 6:03-full moon Fogbow over Lake Superior under northern lights Thanks to Brian Malone for getting the scene at 2:54. I feel extremely fortunate to have witnessed and photographed the several strong auroral outbursts shown here from 2012 at a relatively southern 46.5 degrees latitude in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and am so grateful for the advances in high iso dslr technology to allow for time-lapse capture to be able to create these sequences for such high quality video reproduction of the night sky. All scenes are within 200 miles or so of my home in Marquette, Mi. and I feel very blessed to live where I do and to share the beauty that I see 'in my own backyard' with you. I hope it inspires others to take time to find the beauty that is everywhere around us and also to raise an awareness about the importance of preserving our night wondrous starlit skies. A special thanks to David Helpling and Jon Jenkins who granted permission to use their spectacular track, " Lifted" - from the album "The Crossing" , thanks again David and Jon- so glad to know of this track, I couldn't have thought of a more fitting and inspiring piece of music as a contributing impetus to the completion of this project- you can find more of David Helpling and Jon Jenkins music at www.spottedpeccary.com.

          Lights Over Lapland the Aurora Borealis Experience is a project that I have been working on for the last three years. The video was created using DSLR cameras and a time-lapse technique that required thousands of hours to produce. The opportunity to spend so much time in such an incredible environment capturing this phenomenon has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. If you would like to experience the magic of the aurora borealis in person please visit www.lightsoverlapland.com and book your place on one of our aurora expeditions while we still have spaces available. I would like to thank our editor Tom Malkowicz (vimeo.com/channels/thomas) for his contribution and creative assistance. Without his help this film would not have been possible. I would also like to thank my wife Linnea. Her patience, and willingness to allow me to follow my dreams have been the driving force behind this film. All of the images in the film were captured in Abisko National Park, Sweden. http://www.facebook.com/lightsoverlapland www.lightsoverlapland.com Where will you be when the solar maximum arrives?

                On September 11th and 12th two CMEs interacted with Earth's magnetosphere causing a KP-7 Geomagnetic storm. The storm sparked large aurora displays that will never be forgotten by the people that were lucky enough to witness the event. This short film is for everyone else...

                  This is incredible, real time footage of the Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis filmed on January 24th during the peak of a Solar Storm. This is not time-lapse, this is how the Northern Lights really can dance and move across the sky. The colours are true as well. We even captured a shooting star at 02:30. Shot with a Sony PMW-F3 using a 2 frame slow shutter. I'll upload a higher quality version when I am back home on Feb 2nd. I only have very limited Internet up here in Northern Norway.

                    A strong solar wind coupled with a few surprise CME impacts help spark some beautiful Aurora across much of Canada and the Northern US. The video is made up of around 3500 photos shot overnight on Feb 19 and 20, 2014 in Kananaskis, Canmore, and Banff Alberta. www.blackbirdaerials.com - Aerial Photo and video Follow on twitter! www.twitter.com/richardgottardo Not to be used without permission, Video is available for licensing, contact: info@richardgottardo.com Music: Zach Hemsey - Redemption http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzgYqiOjc4Q
