Lapland lights

By Phil Plait | July 16, 2012 1:03 pm

I get a lot of people sending me time lapse videos, and to be honest, I love it! They’re so much fun to watch, and so many of them actually show the sky above us in a new and interesting way.

At the very least, they’re lovely and invoke a sense of amazement. Even though this next one was made as essentially a travel advertisement for Sweden (it was filmed in Abisko National Park), I’ll allow it – after all, they’re hoping to get more people to see the aurorae! And the video is amazing: over 13 minutes of pretty cool footage of the northern lights.

My list of must-see places to visit on this planet is getting alarmingly long.
