Yes, it’s another time-lapse video, and yes you have to watch it. This spectacular new clip was shot near Tromvik, in northern Norway, one of the best places on earth to witness the northern lights (aurora borealis). Time-lapse specialist Nicholas Buer happened to be visiting the area during a solar flare, which sent massive reverberations through earth’s magnetic field and made the lights go ballistic. Says Buer:
I was fascinated with how the aurora changed so quickly, from rolling like a never ending curtain of soft light stretching, weaving and contorting itself across the Arctic sky, to sharp fingers of green and red piercing the black to its own percussive rhythm.
A friend of mine spoke to a native Norwegian shortly before I embarked on this trip and he told him that Norway “is good for the soul” And after visiting I could not agree more.
