Aurora Panorama 3, Lyngenfjord.

2000Aurora Panorama 3

The vivid green Northern Lights dance above Lyngenfjord, Norway, tracing out the shape of the Earth’s magnetic field above the waters.
Green, the most common colour associated with aurorae, is produced by oxygen atoms and molecules energised by the impact of solar particles that have escaped the sun’s atmosphere, causing them to glow brightly
