Jason Ahrns captured this beautiful image of the Aurora from Fort Yukon, Alaska. The aurora was caused by an unexpected geomagnetic storm that took place on February 15, 2012. He used a Nikon D7000 camera in taking this photo. Here’s a link to Jason’s Flickr page for more stunning pictures of the aurora.
