Aurora Borealis (or the northern lights)
A natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude regions caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere(thermosphere). The charged particles originate in the magnetosphere and solar wind and, on Earth, are directed by the Earth’s magnetic field into the atmosphere. (wiki)
Sorry for the bad quality. I was dumbfounded when I saw it. My jaw literally dropped. I wasn’t able to set my camera properly and I don’t have my tripod with me. I even took this photo with the highest iso (that is ISO 25600). Stupid, stupid me.
I saw this on my way home from the Be Careful with my Heart Edmonton show last night. Simply breathtaking.
