To quote author Philip Pullman “The sight filled the northern sky; the immensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer".
The Aurora Borealis – or more commonly called the Northern Lights – is a beautiful demonstration of the Earth's magnetic field interacting with charged particles from the sun. You won't believe your eyes, as shafts of colored light flicker and dance across the night sky creating a magical light show. Our photographic collection captures the stunning natural beauty of the Northern Lights.
