aurora borealis/Northern Lights caught on video


This is a video of an aurora substorm that was filmed in Yellowknife, Canada.  What I like about it in particular is hearing the people yelping and howling at the sight of it.  It is amazing and satisfying to watch. 

See a webcam focused on the Northern Lights.
