Congrats to Tor Even Mathisen for making the Astronomy Picture of the Day today with his beautiful time-lapse video of the aurora borealis illuminating the night sky over Tromsø, Norway! I first came across this video last week on Bad Astronomy, it’s a hauntingly beautiful presentation of the northern lights in action. Really stunning. I have never seen them in person…I would love to someday, either from the ground or from above! (Hey, it could happen….) Anyway, you just gotta watch this!
