    In the shot taken from low orbit (looking at the aurora on edge), you can see on the Earth a white ring, I think that is the Manicougan Impact Crater in Quebec. If so, it is 40 miles in diameter and 200 million years old. It is visible because it has been flooded and used as a reservoir.

    Many of these photos are shot around my hometown Tromsø in Norway. So it is not on the North Pole, not far away. To enjoy Auroras you just have to be above the arctic circle.

    The first time some people saw this they thought the World was coming to an end, and some nuts still think that. If I had to name this I would call it….”The planet making it’s own art”. What beauty.
