There are many incredible and enthralling things that happen right above our heads, every day. Unfortunately, due to weather conditions and light pollution, we’re not always able to see them. Fortunately, National Geographic has been kind enough to put together some breath taking footage so we can see it for ourselves.
The Northern Lights (or ‘Aurora Borealis’ in the north and ‘Aurora Australis’ in the south) occur a result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere, and charged particles released from the Sun’s atmosphere.
Check this time lapse video they’ve created so you can see the full scope of the incredible scenes above the North Pole.
