No idea how there’s not more comments on this. That made me want to pack my bags for Finland.

Go to Alaska

Yep, Alaska’s the place to go for stuff like this as well. I’ve been there twice, and if you can get out into the bush a little ways–which is pretty easy to do–it looks a lot like this.

I love it when the auroras are bright enough to cast shadows. :)
