The Aurora Borealis for Those of Us South of the Arctic Circle

The Aurora from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.

Living far south of the North Pole, I've only seen glimpses of the Aurora Borealis throughout my lifetime. This recent long-exposure time-lapse photography by Norwegian Terje Sorgjerd is said to offer the best experience short of traveling to the Arctic Circle. You may recognize the background's Hans Zimmer's soundtrack for the last scene in Gladiator.

Nature is often stranger than we can imagine.
