If you wish to master aurora photography and learn from award winning photographers then check offer by Iceland Photo Tours at https://iceland-photo-tours.com/ On 25th February 2014 Sun produced X4.9 flare which on 27th February caused G2 (KP 6) geomagnetic storm on Earth. It was the brightest aurora display so far during this solar maximum which I could witness with auroral displays overhead in the far north of Scotland. This short movie illustrates what has been seen from latitude 58.3 degrees north.

What Causes The Northern Lights?
 
03:33
There are many misconceptions about what causes the Aurora Borealis when it really requires solar winds, magnetic fields and excited atmospheric gases. Learn more at HowStuffWorks.com: http://science.howstuffworks.com/nature/climate-weather/atmospheric/question471.htm Share on Facebook: http://goo.gl/FMuiBa Share on Twitter: http://goo.gl/TR4YyU Subscribe: http://goo.gl/ZYI7Gt Visit our site: http://www.brainstuffshow.com The Northern Lights are beautiful and odd and have understandably inspired many myths. The Vikings thought they were a bridge between our world and Asgard where Thor and the other gods live. In another Norse myth, they are the light reflected of the armor of the Valkyries. And people in Finland thought it was the archangel Michael (John Travolta) battling Beelzebub (the devil). Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. All wrong. It was the famous early astronomer and recanter of science, Galileo Galilei, who gave the Northern lights the name Aurora Borealis, which means “dawn of the North” in Latin. But it wasn’t until Norwegian scientist Christian Birkeland figured it out in 1896 that the true origin of the auroras was understood. In the center of the Earth, the molten iron core generates magnetic fields that extend through the crust and into space around the planet, creating what’s called Earth’s magnetosphere. It’s a pretty great thing that Earth has it, because the magnetosphere protects us from all manner of charged particles spit out from the Sun. The Sun is so hot that it produces plasma (a fourth state of matter) where positively charged atoms (ions) and negatively charge electrons flow freely around one another. These highly charged particles have enough energy to escape the Sun’s gravity and fly out into space, barreling toward Earth at 1 million miles per hour like a shotgun blast of solar hate. This is called solar wind. When they encounter our magnetosphere, most of these ions and electrons bounce harmlessly off and Earth is saved. But some of these particles make it through the magnetosphere where it’s weakest (at the north and south poles), and when they do the light show begins. The electrons that make it into our atmosphere interact with some of the elements there, particularly oxygen and nitrogen. The electrons transfer energy to them, exciting them in the process. To calm down, the excited atoms must release some energy, which they do as tiny packets of light called photons -- beautiful, beautiful photons. Depending on where in the atmosphere the electrons interact with these other atoms, different colors are produced. Oxygen emits a yellow-green color up to about 150 miles in the atmosphere. After that, it turns red. Nitrogen emits a nice blue color about 60 miles up. And don’t forget these colors can blend, which can create glowing pinks, purples and whites. It’s like Miami Beach up there. This interplay is most vibrant during solar storms, which depend somewhat on the Sun’s solar cycle. And, although these lights can be produced at all hours, they aren’t visible during the day, since the sunlight outshines them.

New York and Chicago may see the Northern Lights, This weekend due to an Unusual Geomagnetic Storm
 
03:35
A giant cloud of charged particles known as a coronal mass ejection (CME). is coming on Saturday, which means people in some parts of the northern US, may see the Northern Lights then, the NOAA said. The phenomenon is due to the combination of the oncoming CME, and a small solar flare that struck earlier this week. Seeing the Northern Lights "is not a guarantee but conditions are favorable," meteorologist Joe Charlevoix said. Cities as far south as New York, and Chicago may see the Northern Lights, on Saturday due to an unusual geomagnetic storm, meteorologists said. A giant cloud of charged particles from the solar corona, the layer of gas surrounding the sun, known as a coronal mass ejection (CME) is expected to arrive on Saturday. This in turn could increase the reach and intensity of the aurora borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, to parts of the northern US over the weekend, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said. Meteorologist Joe Charlevoix tweeted that the Northern Lights, would likely be visible on Saturday night. "This is not a guarantee but conditions are favorable," he said. According to the NOAA's graph, some parts of states like Illinois, Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania might be able to see the lights: Laura Tobin, a weather presenter for UK, breakfast show Good Morning Britain, Said that some northern areas of Britain could also see the Northern Lights. The phenomenon is due to the combination of the oncoming CME, and a small solar flare a sudden, high-energy blast of increased brightness on the sun that hit on Wednesday, the NOAA said. The solar flare disrupted some radio operators in Europe and Africa, Hundreds of thousands of people travel to northern regions like Iceland, Norway, and Alaska every year to see the Northern Lights.

25 Interesting Facts About Northern Lights You Should Know Before You See Them
 
05:17
Officially known as Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights are one of nature's most spectacular visual phenomena. Appearing in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, curtains or shooting rays, the northern lights' amazing light display can be observed in the sky of high latitude regions such as Norway or Canada. You might know the cause of this natural phenomenon (collision of solar wind and magnetospheric charged particles) but there are many more interesting facts about this unreal spectacle that are worth learning. Here are 25 of them, illustrated with some of the most amazing Northern Lights pictures you have ever seen. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the physical list here for some extra info and explanations - http://list25.com/25-interesting-facts-about-northern-lights-you-should-know-before-you-see-them/ And now for a quick preview: The most spectacular Northern Lights in recent recorded history are considered those from the "Great geomagnetic storm" on 28 August and 2 September 1859. Studies have shown that a solar storm of this magnitude occurring today would likely cause widespread problems for modern civilization. Astronauts on board the International Space Station are at the same altitude as the Northern Lights and see them from the side. The Southern Lights offer the same visual display as the Northern Lights but since the South Pole is even more inhospitable and inaccessible than the North Pole, it is more difficult to view the Southern Aurora. Therefore, the Northern Lights are more popular and get almost all the attention. There are several towns famous for their great conditions for watching the Northern Lights. In North America, the aurora tourism capital is Yellowknife (Northwest Territories, Canada), while Tromso (Northern Norway) is the same for Europe. There have been many legends about the Northern Lights. Some North American Inuit tribes call the aurora „aqsarniit“ (meaning “football players”) thinking it is the spirits of the dead playing football with a head of a walrus. The colors of the Northern Lights depend on what gas is involved and how high in the ionosphere the reaction takes place. Blue and green lights form at lower altitudes while red color comes from the highest altitudes. Auroras tend to be more frequent and spectacular during high solar sunspot activity, which cycles over approximately eleven years. The last climax was in 2013. [...]

What Causes The Northern Lights? (Aurora Borealis)
 
04:56
The aurora borealis or northern lights is one of the most spectacular natural displays on the planet. Theories about its origins have been debated for centuries and common misconceptions persist that the aurora is the sun's rays scattered off ice crystals in the high atmosphere. In truth, the light is created more than 100km above Earth's surface as high speed electrons and protons ejected from the sun in a solar flare or coronal mass ejection collide with air molecules in the upper atmosphere. The charged particles from the sun excite air molecules which then de-excite by emitting light. The display is most common around the north and south poles because the Earth's magnetic field deflects the solar wind from the equator to the poles. Here the magnetic field dips towards the Earth's surface, channeling the charged particles into the atmosphere. Music is by Kevin MacLeod http://incompetech.com, the song is called Mirage

Dance of the Spirits: Incredible Real Time Northern Lights from Jan 24 Solar Storm
 
05:39
This is incredible, real time footage of the Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis filmed on January 24th during the peak of a Solar Storm. This is not time-lapse, this is how the Northern Lights really can dance and move across the sky. The colours are true as well. We even captured a shooting star at 02:30. The video was filmed during one of my annual Northern Lights photo and video expeditions. I'm running more of these in 2014: http://www.wild-weather.com/northern-lights-expeditions-to-norway/ Shot using a Sony PMW-F3 using a 2 frame slow shutter, S-Log and +18db gain (ISO 6400). Sadly compressing to H264 makes the video a bit blocky and with a lot of banding. I'll try to upload a higher quality version once I return home from Norway at the beginning of Feb.

Amazing view! Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in the Arctic
 
04:10
An aurora is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) 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. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis (or the northern lights), named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas, by Pierre Gassendi in 1621. The northern lights have had a number of names throughout history. The Cree call this phenomenon the "Dance of the Spirits". In Europe, in the Middle Ages, the auroras were commonly believed a sign from God. Its southern counterpart, the aurora australis (or the southern lights), has almost identical features to the aurora borealis and changes simultaneously with changes in the northern auroral zone and is visible from high southern latitudes in Antarctica, South America, New Zealand and Australia.

Aurora Borealis: The Science Behind The Northern Lights
 
03:10
The Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, is among the most captivating natural phenomena on Earth. Here’s how those shimmering green shapes are formed. For more stories --- http://allday.com/ Follow our twitter account ---- https://twitter.com/scienceallday Charged Particles Auroras are caused by charged particles entering the atmosphere and causing ionization of gasses, which produces the familiar light. The particles usually originate from a magnetic field created by the sun. "Northern Lights" Auroras occur in a region that mostly covers northern Canada and Alaska. The "Northern Lights" are named the aurora borealis, while the same phenomena in the Southern Hemisphere is called the aurora australis. Magnetic Midnight The best time for observing auroras is when the North or South Magnetic Pole is exactly in between the sun and an observer on Earth's surface, known as "magnetic midnight." The Shapes of the Aurora The charged particles that hit the atmosphere move in spirals along the magnetic field lines of the earth. The particles enter the atmospheric gases in a ring around the magnetic poles, giving the excited gasses their long, ribbon-like shape. Aurora Altitude Auroras typically occur between 55 and 95 miles above the ground, while extending at times to more than 620 miles into the upper atmosphere. Different Ions Produce Different Colors The different atmospheric gasses that are ionized by the charged particles are responsible for the different colors produced in an aurora, with excited oxygen producing green or orange-red emissions, and nitrogen producing blue or red emissions. Digital Cameras Pick Them Up Easier Aurora have been notoriously difficult to photograph, as the red emissions can be somewhat dim, requiring long exposures. Digital cameras with highly-sensitive components have led to a proliferation of aurora images, however. They Are Visible From Space During intense bouts of solar wind, aurora are bright enough to be seen from orbit, and astronauts aboard the International Space Station have photographed the lights numerous times. They Can Move South When conditions are right, the aurora can extend much farther south than they normally appear, as they did in 2011 when the lights showed up over Oklahoma and Atlanta. They even made a famous appearance during the Civil War Battle of Fredericksburg in 1862.

The Sound of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)
 
02:06
As well as the visible green or red glow of the Aurora Borealis (or Northern Lights), there is also created an intense radio emission that can be converted to sound. Professor Carolin Crawford here explains the phenomena and introduces us to that sound of the Aurora Borealis. The Aurora Borealis is created by solar wind hitting the earth's atmosphere. The charged particles of the solar wind are normally deflected away by the shield of Earth's magnetic field, but some are able to leak into the magnetosphere around the earth, where they are then guided along Earth's magnetic field to reach deeper into the atmosphere. Here they collide with the oxygen and nitrogen molecules of the air, to produce a luminous green and red glow that is the aurorae (Northern or Southern lights). These moving charged particles that create the northern lights also produce intense radio emission at very low frequencies. We can 'hear' the aurorae as a busy chatter when these radio signals are converted to sound, varying on the real timescale that you can hear. This is an extract from a lecture by Carolin Crawford, Gresham Professor of Astronomy: 'The Sounds of the Universe'. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-sounds-of-the-universe Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website.

The Northern Lights

Get more Tips here! www.destinationtips.com See the lights from Canada, Iceland, Finland, Scotland, Sweden, Norway and space! What are the Northern Lights? These dazzling displays occur when proton and electrons stream out from the sun and slam into the Earth's magnetic field. Different ions make different colors, such as vibrant waves of green, blue, purple and red across the sky. They're considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Vikings thought they were the shining weapons of immortal warriors. Laplanders thought these "fox fires" were created by the swooshing tail of an Arctic fox. Inuit believed they were the souls of animals. Auroras are relatively dim, and the redder light is often at the limit of what human retinas can pick up. Watch them through a video camera for better viewing! The best time to see them is March to April, September to October, or anytime there is a solar storm. They are unpredictable, and there are no guarantees you'll see them if you visit the north at that time.

What Causes The Northern Lights?

Have you ever seen the beautiful auroral displays in the high latitudes? These are the Northern and Southern Lights. But what dark physics wizardry is going on to make this happen?

Here in Canada, we call them the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis, but the lucky folks in the far southern latitudes see them too. On a good night, you can see flickering sheets of light that dance across the night sky, producing an amazing display of colors. You can see green, red and even yellow and purple ghostly displays. So what causes the Northern Lights? They’re produced as our planet moves through the chemtrails emanating from the womp-rat sized exhaust ports of Planet X. Originating in the Bush-Cheney administration during a failed co-invasion attempt of the lizard people from the hollow part of the flat earth and aliens from John Carpenter’s THE THING. They cause diabetes, gluten sensitivity, itchy bun noodles and homeopathy and herald the coming of the Grand Nagus of MMA-UFC-ENTJ-LOL-WTF-BBQ. That is, if you believe everything you read on the internet. Auroras are in fact caused by interactions between energetic particles from the Sun and the Earth’s magnetic field. The Earth is filled with liquid metal, and it rotates inside turning our planet into a giant magnet. Invisible magnetic field lines travel from the Earth’s northern magnetic pole to its southern magnetic pole. This is why compasses point north, they’re following the field lines produced by this giant metallic spinning goo core. Or as I like to call it “The Planetary Shield Generator”, which should not be confused with the giant whirling metallic debris field orbiting the Earth which is our “Alien Invasion Shield”. Which you can learn about in another episode. So why would we need a Planetary Shield, you might ask? It is because we are perpetually under assault by our great enemy, the Sun. Our Sun is constantly releasing a flurry of energetic particles right at us. These particles are electrically charged and driven to Earth by the Solar Wind. When they encounter the Earth’s magnetic field, they’re forced into a spiral along the magnetic field lines. Eventually they collide with an oxygen or nitrogen atom in the Earth’s atmosphere and release photons of light. So, thanks to the spinning magnet goo core, our planetary shield converts these particles into beautiful night time displays. Although there can be auroras almost any night in the highest latitudes, we see the most brilliant auroral displays after large flares on the Sun. The most powerful flares blast a hail of particles that’s so intense, auroral displays can be seen at mid and even low-latitudes. It sounds dangerous, but we’re perfectly safe here, beneath our protective atmosphere and magnetic field. You might be amazed to know that auroral displays can even make sounds. People have reported crackling noises coming from the sky during an aurora. Even though the auroras themselves are at very high altitudes, the particle interactions can happen just a few hundred meters above the ground. People have reported hearing claps and crackles during an aurora, and this has been verified by microphones placed by scientists. If you could get high up into the atmosphere, I’m sure the sounds would be amazing. The interactions between the Sun and our planet are just another gift we get from the night sky. If you've never seen an aurora with your own eyes, you really need to add them to your bucket list. Organize a trip to northern Europe or Alaska and get a chance to see this amazing display of nature. Have you ever been lucky enough to see the Northern Lights? Tell us a story in the comments below.

What are The Northern Lights? | Sci Guide (Ep 37) w/ Jheni Osman | Head Squeeze
 
02:51
The wondrous mystery of the Aurora Borealis or Northern lights scientifically explained by Jheni Osman in this Head Squeeze video. What causes the Northern Lights? Well apparently it's our Sun and as we are at the peak of an eleven year solar cycle, 2013 is a fantastic year to see them! The Sun's core nuclear fusion heats hydrogen turning it into helium at extraordinarily high temperatures. Particles heated to this extreme move at very high speeds. If they reach over 400 km/s they can break free from the Sun's gravity. Then they come streaming across space in the solar wind. The solar wind would destroy all life on earth due to its lethal radiation were it nor for the protection of the Earth's magnetic field. At the centre of our planet a hot crystal centre stirs up the molten core, resulting in powerful magnetic forces which create a protective envelope called the magnetosphere. However at the Earth's poles some of the solar charged particles manage to break through the magnetosphere, smashing into the upper atmosphere and colliding with nitrogen and oxygen ions, absorbing their energy. As the ions return to their natural state they radiate light. Nitrogen emits red, blue and purple, while oxygen emits red and yellow. If you see green in the aurora borealis, that's a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen ions. Earth's Aurorae can also be seen in the south, known as the Aurora Australis in places like Australasia, Antarctica, Argentina and Chile between March and September. Aurorae can be seen on other planets which have even stronger magnetic fields than Earth such as Jupiter and Saturn. The Hubble Space Telescope has captured picture of Aurorae on far away Neptune and Uranus. In the likely event that you want to see them form Earth, head down to the most Northern or Southern point you can on a clear crisp night and get ready for the light show!

Beautiful Night of the Northern Lights,   aurora
 
02:23
Northern Lights Visit us!!! Think less, Live more. www.goodvibez.net Visit us!!! https://www.facebook.com/Good-Vibez-915613645162744/?ref=hl The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south.. Auroral displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink are the most common. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet have been reported. The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow. What causes the Northern Lights? The Northern Lights are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun's atmosphere. Variations in colour are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common auroral color, a pale yellowish-green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth. Rare, all-red auroras are produced by high-altitude oxygen, at heights of up to 200 miles. Nitrogen produces blue or purplish-red aurora. The connection between the Northern Lights and sunspot activity has been suspected since about 1880. Thanks to research conducted since the 1950's, we now know that electrons and protons from the sun are blown towards the earth on the 'solar wind'. (Note: 1957-58 was International Geophysical Year and the atmosphere was studied extensively with balloons, radar, rockets and satellites. Rocket research is still conducted by scientists at Poker Flats, a facility under the direction of the University of Alaska at Fairbanks - see web page http://www.gi.alaska.edu/ The temperature above the surface of the sun is millions of degrees Celsius. At this temperature, collisions between gas molecules are frequent and explosive. Free electrons and protons are thrown from the sun's atmosphere by the rotation of the sun and escape through holes in the magnetic field. Blown towards the earth by the solar wind, the charged particles are largely deflected by the earth's magnetic field. However, the earth's magnetic field is weaker at either pole and therefore some particles enter the earth's atmosphere and collide with gas particles. These collisions emit light that we perceive as the dancing lights of the north (and the south). The lights of the Aurora generally extend from 80 kilometres (50 miles) to as high as 640 kilometres (400 miles) above the earth's surface. Where is the best place to watch the Northern Lights? Northern Lights can be seen in the northern or southern hemisphere, in an irregularly shaped oval centred over each magnetic pole. The lights are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south. Scientists have learned that in most instances northern and southern auroras are mirror-like images that occur at the same time, with similar shapes and colors. Because the phenomena occurs near the magnetic poles, northern lights have been seen as far south as New Orleans in the western hemisphere, while similar locations in the east never experience the mysterious lights. However the best places to watch the lights (in North America) are in the northwestern parts of Canada, particularly the Yukon, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Alaska. Auroral displays can also be seen over the southern tip of Greenland and Iceland, the northern coast of Norway and over the coastal waters north of Siberia. Southern auroras are not often seen as they are concentrated in a ring around Antarctica and the southern Indian Ocean. Areas that are not subject to 'light pollution' are the best places to watch for the lights. Areas in the north, in smaller communities, tend to be best. When is the best time to watch for auroral displays? Researchers have also discovered that auroral activity is cyclic, peaking roughly every 11 years. The next peak period is 2013. Winter in the north is generally a good season to view lights. The long periods of darkness and the frequency of clear nights provide many good opportunities to watch the auroral displays. Usually the best time of night (on clear nights) to watch for auroral displays is local midnight (adjust for differences caused by daylight savings time). http://www.gi.alaska.edu/

Aurora in Iceland - How to see the Northern Lights
 
01:42
Have you ever witnessed the famous Northern Lights? You won't believe your own eyes! For Northern Light tours in Iceland, see: https://guidetoiceland.is/book-trips-holiday/nature-tours/northern-lights The Northern Lights, commonly known as the aurora borealis, were named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas. The Northern lights are a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude regions, both the Arctic and Antarctic (where they are called the aurora australis), 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. Luckily for travellers in the north, a side effect of all of this is the dazzling spectrum of colours that light up the skies in the long arctic winter nights!

An aurora (auroras or aurorae), sometimes referred to as polar lights, northern lights (aurora borealis) or southern lights (aurora australis), is a natural light display in the Earth's sky. Auroras paint The sky around the poles, when the sun is particularly active, hurls charged particles into the Earth's atmosphere.

Northern Lights Cruise - Chasing the northern lights / Aurora Borealis
 
11:55
This Northern Lights cruise is rated as one of the best cruises in the world. This is the best way to see the northern lights and to enjoy the Norway coast. Hurtigruten is a shipping company that offer this amazing cruise which is a great way to explore the Arctic sky and the incredible Northern lights, the Aurora Borealis. This cruise is one of the best ways to explore the mesmerising Norwegian Coast and the world famous fjords. There are 34 stops along the way. We visited some of the most amazing cities and towns along the Norwegian coast: -Bergen: The cruise starts in Bergen, Norway's second biggest city after the capital, Oslo. Bergen is considered the gateway to the fjords. It boats the home of Edward Grieg, Norway’s most famous composer. The Bergen Funicular allows you to take a ride on Fløibanen cable car to the Fløyen mountain and lookout point. This gives you the best views of Bergen. -Ålesund: We explored the Art Noveau town of Ålesund, this pretty town has an incredible lookout point. It’s a bit of a walk with over 400 stairs, but the effort is well worth it. -Trondheim: Trondheim has an amazing gothic cathedral called the Nidaros Cathedral. There is a beautiful canal with colourful wooden houses along each edge. The canal can be traversed by crossing the beautiful Old Town Bridge. -Tromsø: This beautiful city has an incredible Arctic Cathedral which is in an unusual triangular shape. Tromsø has a cable car or aerial tramway called Fjellheisen which takes you to Storsteinen mountain some 400 meters above sea level. This is one of the most beautiful views of Tromsø -Arctic circle: On this cruise you cross into the article circle and spend a number of days there. We hardly saw any sun. -Kirkenes: This is one of the northern most towns in Norway. At this stop we explored the Snow Hotel: Snowhotel Kirkenes Bjørnevatn Website: www.SnowhotelKirkenes.com‎. The Snowhotel Kirkenes has a Husky Safari which is an incredible arctic adventure and a great way to enjoy a husky dogsled.

This Artist is Capturing Stunning Videos of the Northern Lights
 
03:51
Keating Smith talks about working alone in the middle of the night, capturing a light show most people never get to see. »Subscribe to CBC Arts to watch more videos: http://bit.ly/CBCArtsSubscribe Keating Smith is known as an astro-cinematographer whose videos of the Aurora have gone viral. His love of the stellar display means that he searches out the lights well after dark, alone in the snow. It's a solitary practice that has become soothing for the artist — and is also pretty great for those of us who might not have the chance to make the Northern trek ourselves. In this video, Smith takes you on an Aurora shoot and tells you some of what it takes to create his iridescent footage.

The magic of the Northern Lights - as seen from Sweden
 
00:21
It's a sight many dream of seeing - the magical Northern Lights. Videographer Chad Blakey used a time-lapse technology to capture what many witnesses described as one of the most spectacular shows seen in recent years. Officially known as the Aurora Borealis, they occur when charged particles emitted by the sun during flare activity, reach the Earth's atmosphere and collide with its gases. The most common colour is green but pinks blues reds and whites have been observed. … READ MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2015/02/18/the-magic-of-the-northern-lights-as-seen-from-sweden What are the top stories today?

The World's Very First REAL-TIME Northern Lights Captured in 4K Ultra High Definition
 
04:25
Come along with us on a virtual experience, Aurora Chasing in 4K Ultra High Def! Despite being under the weather (in all senses, it was well below zero and we were quite sick with the flu), Marketa, Angus and I ventured out to capture the Northern Lights with our newest tool, the Atomos Shogun 4K external recorder. We combined this with a Sony a7S and a DJI Ronin for a look at what's it like to "Chase the Lights." The Atomos did great and while the Ronin usually does a good job it seemed quite jittery on this night. I'm in contact with support and hope to find a resolution to this but it's done that the last few times I've taken it out in temps colder than 10ºF. Keep in mind it is very windy, I'm stumbling around in knee deep snow and it's about 0ºF so considering, it still held up rather well. This is a sample of how the Ronin should and usually does behave. http://youtu.be/1bb5qGmtG_M As of 1/14/15 I'm still waiting to hear back from DJI. It seems we have a few things to work out both with the Ronin and the Shogun but are very excited for this amazing trio once we get things rolling smoothly. If you'd like to be out there having your portraits taken in front of these magnificent Northern Lights, join us for a night under the Aurora. http://www.ronnmurrayphoto.com/NorthernLightsTours/TourOptions/Winter-Aurora-Alaska This video intended to show what's its like to actually be out beneath these amazing Auroras we witness almost nightly. Please explore this channel, and our website for the more polished videos.

The most common color displayed is a brilliant yellow-green, but the aurora borealis can also produce red, blue and purple patterns. An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar lights or northern lights, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere), where their energy is lost. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits light of varying color and complexity.

NASA Connect Segment exploring the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. This segment exlains this natural phenomena and its history. Year: 2004. Keywords: Aurora Borealis; Northern Lights; Artificial Aurora; Terrella; Magnetism; Earth; Electrons; Natural Phenomena; Plasma; Solar Wind; Light Particles; Atmospheric Gases; Duration: 00:04:39; Sponsor: NASA; Contributing Organization: NASA. Auroras (North/South Polar Lights; or aurorae, sing.: aurora) are natural colored light displays in the sky, usually observed at night, particularly in the polar zone. They typically occur in the ionosphere. Some scientists call them "polar auroras" (or "aurorae polares"). In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis, named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas. It often appears as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the sun was rising from an unusual direction. The aurora borealis is also called the northern polar lights, as it is only visible in the North sky from the Northern Hemisphere. The aurora borealis most often occurs from September to October and from March to April. The Cree call this phenomenon the Dance of the Spirits. Its southern counterpart, the aurora australis/southern polar lights, has similar properties. Australis is the Latin word for "of the South". Benjamin Franklin first brought attention to the "mystery of the Northern Lights." He theorized the shifting lights to a concentration of electrical charges in the polar regions intensified by the snow and other moisture. Auroras are produced by the collision of charged particles from Earth's magnetosphere, mostly electrons but also protons and heavier particles, with atoms and molecules of Earth's upper atmosphere (at altitudes above 80 km). The particles have energies of 1 to 100 keV. They originate from the Sun and arrive at the vicinity of Earth in the relatively low-energy solar wind. When the trapped magnetic field of the solar wind is favourably oriented (principally southwards) it reconnects with Earth's magnetic field, and solar particles enter the magnetosphere and are swept to the magnetotail. Further magnetic reconnection accelerates the particles towards Earth. The collisions in the atmosphere electronically excite atoms and molecules in the upper atmosphere. The excitation energy can be lost by light emission or collisions. Most aurorae are green and red emission from atomic oxygen. Molecular nitrogen and nitrogen ions produce some low level red and very high blue/violet aurorae. The light blue colors are produced by ionic nitrogen and the neutral nitrogen gives off the red and purple color with the rippled edges. Different gases interacting with the upper atmosphere will produce different colors, caused by the different compounds of oxygen and nitrogen.

BOREALIS - Bringing The Northern Lights Experience The World Over
 
02:39
The Northern Lights experience. Anywhere and anytime. BOREALIS A new touring artwork by Swiss artist Dan Acher This brand new piece brings the experience of the Northern Lights to cities the world over. Time slows down as eyes look up. An aurora, here and now, in our latitudes? Dan Acher's creation is as much a work of art as it is a technological performance. High power laser beams travel through particle clouds to create the illusion. Variations in movement, colour, and density, together with changing weather conditions, give infinite variations. A unique aurora is created each time. Throughout the ages man has attributed countless legends to the phenomenon. BOREALIS is about our ancestral communion with nature and about our recent compulsion to control it. OXSA's musical composition supports this monumental piece, premiered over the Rolex Learning Centre at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology to mark the opening of the new ArtLab building in November 2016. RUSHES AVAILABLE ON DEMAND // HD stills below /////////////////////// Dan Acher's city-wide installations are about connection in shared environments, bringing the ceremonial back into our streets. From immersive streetlight orchestras through to monumental urban projections, his designs have ranged from targeted interventions to events created for audiences of over 90,000. Dan's previous work has been featured in The Creators Project and Shareable amongst others. He is an Ashoka Swiss Changemaker and is regularly invited to share his vision.
