Thanks for sharing. Aurora are at the very top of my wish list, but I don't expect to ever see one in person. Love the video!

Thank you rayona, mrwing13 and Jeannie!

Rayona, this is a series of 15 second exposures, taken immediately 0ne-right-after-another.

The lights are constantly moving, but a 15 second exposures blurs the edges a LOT. However, the real-time motion isn't this fast. And it is much more smooth, very silky and water-like.

I hope this isn't a totally stupid question, but I'll ask it anyway. Is this a time lapse or does the light shift this quickly? Thank you. At any rate, it is magnificent!

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
