The aurora borealis, or commonly known as Northern lights has been fascinating travelers to Norway and locals alike for generations.
Each appearance of the northern lights is unique. Often you see three green bands across the night sky. Or the lights come as flickering curtains or rolling smoke. The colour is a luminous green, often with a hint of pink along the edge, and occasionally with a deep violet centre. The colour palette seems to come from the 1980s.
If there is a lot of activity up there, the northern lights explode for a minute or two in a corona. The next minute it is all over, and you ask yourself whether this was real or just an Arctic fata morgana.
You cannot stop watch nature’s own theater unfold above you as the most spectacular light show takes center stage: The northern lights with you in the front row.
This magnificient light show can take many forms and in colors. Here we collected nine photos of Northern lights which were taken mostly in Northern Norway. Enjoy it!
