The bright, animated Northern Lights, also known as Aurora borealis, are the are the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles from the sun’s atmosphere.The lights can appear in several colors, depending on the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common color is a pale, yellowish green, while rarer colors feature blue, purple and red auroras.
In March 2012, Filmmakers Claus and Anneliese Possberg used approximately 600 frames to create a time-lapse video of the Northern Lights shimmering above Norway. The video is accompanied with music by Justin Durban.
What makes this aurora video experience unique to viewers are the appearances of rarer colors. The bright stars in the background provide an almost magical atmosphere to add to the already surreal nature of the lights.The majority of sequences are shot within clear, starry skies, where the movement of the lights is captured in perfect detail from a variety of angles. The auroras emerge through the cloud cover as an explosion of light.
Most sequences are shot above a house or a creative sign of human life. It is a pleasant contrast to highlight the beauty of nature along with the human life which exists below it.
It can be argued that this is one of the most stunning and inspiring aurora videos existing on the web, but that shall be left for viewers to decide. Leave your opinion in the comments section.
