Simply Stunning Aurora Video from Norway

Photographer Terje Sorgjerd spent a week capturing what he called “one of the biggest aurora borealis shows in recent years,” and the results are simply stunning. The footage was shot in and around Kirkenes and Pas National Park in the very north part of Norway, which borders Russia, at 70 degree north and 30 degrees east. Temperatures were around -25 Celsius, Sorgjerd said.

    Oh my. Just magical. One of the most breathtaking and beautiful video sequences of aurora I’ve seen. Almost as good as being there!
    Want to booking my airline tickets, and moving to Norway!
