The Northern Lights time-lapse video below was shot in the Arctic Circle in March, 2014 in the small town of Wiseman, Alaska – with a population of 14.
A vibrant display of lights shines and explodes in the sky at 0:45 in the video. In the background, the moon rises over the Smith Creek Dome and Midnight Dome Peaks during the best time of the year to view the Aurora Borealis.
This natural light display, also known as the Northern Lights, is produced by solar wind particles in earth’s magnetic field. In the video, an auroral curtain pattern fills the sky with waves undulating back forth with varying light intensity.
