Aurora Above The Mountains


David Bowman


Photograph - Photography


Standing in subzero temperatures waiting and hoping the aurora will show itself (it was -20 on this particular evening) is a unique experience and one I would highly recommend to everyone. If you're lucky and it does appear it can feel like you're on another planet. 2012 and 2013 are supposed to be particularly good years for seeing the Northern Lights. We were certainly blessed on this particular evening. The most amazing display of shimmering greens, yellow, reds and purples criss-crossing the sky and lasting for around 3 hours. You may get a crick in your neck by the end, but it's more than worth it! - near Tromso, Norway
An aurora is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere (thermosphere). The charged particles originate in the magnetosphere and solar wind and, on Earth, are directed by the Earth's magnetic field into the atmosphere.
In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis (or the northern lights), named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas. Auroras seen near the magnetic pole may be high overhead, but from farther away, they illuminate the northern horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the Sun were rising from an unusual direction. Discrete aurorae often display magnetic field lines or curtain-like structures, and can change within seconds or glow unchanging for hours, most often in fluorescent green.
The northern lights have had a number of names throughout history. The Cree call this phenomenon the "Dance of the Spirits". In Europe, in the Middle Ages, the auroras were commonly believed a sign from God.
If you like my work please consider voting for it. It only takes a second.
