Unique Photos of Northern Lights Around the World

Those who have been lucky enough to witness the aurora borealis , say it is one of the most fascinating spectacles of nature. An Aurora starts with a fluorescent glow on the horizon. Then it decreases and an illuminated arc is formed – sometimes circles can emerge. The explanation of how the aurora borealis is formed is related to solar activity and with the composition and characteristics of our earth’s atmosphere.

Below we put together some of the best northern lights, formed around the world. “H/T”: designyourtrust
