It seems to be the place where Trolls, Elves, Wolves and Kings all exist. It seems to be a place where mermaids are a reality. It’s seems to be a place where nature unfolds its own extravagant light show.

Called the “Dance of the Spirits” by the Cree and believed to be signs from GOD by the Medieval Europe, the northern lights have time and again amazed and awed me with their beauty, patterns and just brilliant florescent lights waving and rising from ground to the sky. But the only shame is, as I sit hypnotized starring at the pictures of AuroraBorealis, I forget and fail to plan a visit to Norway.

*Where to see: The Auroral zone extends over northern Scandinavia, Island, the southern tip of Greenland and extends over northern Canada, Alaska and along the northern coast of Siberia. The coasts of the Norwegian counties of Troms and Finnmark lay where occurrence is greatest, making northern Norway, due to its ease of access and mild winter climate, an attractive destination for people interested in observing this atmospheric phenomenon.

Some Science: Named after the Roman Goddess of Dawn “Aurora”, the “Aurora Borealis”, more commonly known as the northern lights are a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude of Arctic and Antarctic regions. It’s caused by the collision of charged particles with atoms in the high altitude of atmosphere. It occurs most frequently in a belt of radius 2500 km centered on the magnetic north pole.

Of all the billions of images of the various places that I have seen so far, if I were to choose a last view of my life, it would be of “Aurora Borealis”
