"If you could see the Earth illuminated when you were in a place as dark as night,
it would look to you more splendid than the moon."

-Galileo Galilei

Inspired by this incredible video by Nasa: Earth Illuminated (time-lapse photography).


I've always imagined the northern lights as dancing spirits.
...I want to see the Northern Lights just once in my life before I die. ;__;

Great! I've been a fan of Aurora/nightsky photos, but this one looks equally impressive.

I love your work! It is very beautiful and creative the way you made the different animals.

It's lovely. The colors and concept are incredible. You're not alone in your spirit thoughts. Many cultures have presumed the lights to be Gods/Godesses, souls, and spirits of varying origins.
Have you seen this video [link] here on dA by ~Lovepanda29 She got some great shots, unfortunately, she had to speed up her time-lapse, but it gives you another glimpse of their beauty.
I am lucky enough to live in Northern Michigan (US), and every so often we get a beautiful show, though not quite as colorful or huge as those farther north get, but still stunning. Once I stood on the hill behind my parents house, as I looked across the field I could see an orange harvest moon, I could trace the belt of the Milky Way across the sky, and behind me were small white tendrils of light dancing and shifting on a whim. That was one of the most magical nights I have ever seen. Just keep an eye on the sky, even the small wispy shows are worth seeing. I would wish everyone the pleasure of seeing the Northern Lights (or their Southern counterpart) in person.
