The northern lights appear generally on the north and south pole regions of our beautiful blue planet and are the result of the earth’s magnetic field interacting with solar winds and flares. You are in essence witnessing the shield that protects us from the harshest types of cosmic rays and other radiation from space.
This footage was taken in Yukon, Canada and shows the gorgeous patterns and wave-like motion of this awesome astronomical phenomenon.
