Aurora Borealis II

Incredible video showing the aurora borealis as seen from space. Time-lapse sequences taken August - October, 2011 by the crew of expeditions 28 and 29 aboard the International Space Station. Best to view this amazing clip full screen. Keep telling yourself that it's not CGI. [NOTE: Edited by Michael Konig; music by Jan Jelinik].


Aurora Borealis

Seems like an appropriate Friday for this beautiful time lapse. Another jewel by the Norwegian photographer Terje Sorgjerd (see Thai Markets/Thai Trains) shot in the Kirkenes and Pas National Park of Norway near the border with Russia. [NOTE: Go here for an explanation of the physics of the auroral mechanism].
