Northern Lights

This video is a time lapse of a really beautiful Aurora Borealis recorded near Murmansk, Russia.
Murmansk is almost as far north in Russia as you can go and sits right in the arctic circle.

The Aurora is caused by electrically charged particles colliding into each other in a magnetic field almost 60 miles above the earth and create a stunningly beautiful display of color.
