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!

  4. That is so lovely. Our earth gives us so many gifts if we are open to it. Thank you for posting something so beautiful. I want to save the video to look at when I feel sad or stressed out. What could be more beautiful than that?
