The Northern Lights, Yesterday
Good Harbor Bay, Michigan is above the 45th Parallel, meaning it’s closer to the North Pole than to the equator. In Michigan, the Northern Lights can be seen. One photographer living near Traverse City, Michigan decided make a short video of the lights from yesterday, July 16, 2012. They were incredible. Imagine how they must have looked in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, over in Maine, or in Alaska. Don’t forget to look up next time. via Space.com
A stunning view of the shimmering northern lights was captured by the Expedition 30 crew as the International Space Station passed from over Wisconsin to southeastern Quebec on Jan. 25, 2012.
The video (at the link) shows about five minutes of real time compressed into 30 seconds through the magic of time-lapse photography.
Around the world the epic Northern Lights (caused by a massive geometric storm) seen across the country showed off in magnificent pink and green skies in parts of the United States.
The Aurora Borealis is a rare sight in the skies above the U.S.
