"A U R O R A" Aurorae's Profile

a u r o r a - polar lights

"The whole dome of night sky was awash with colour: ...

...cascades of yellow-green and blushes of crimson fanning from a darker point high overhead...

...As they fell in board rays, they shifted and changed the brightness, sometimes intense in one place, then cool, then hot...

... It was like looking up into the heart of a flower of glorious light whose petals rippled in a breeze that could not be felt - a breath from beyond this planet..."

Text from: National Geographic (November 2001)

This is a u r o r a - one of the most fascinating natural phenomena.
