45 Northern Lights Pictures From Every Angle on Earth

This is it, this year’s northern lights season is coming to an end and what better way to summarize it with a compilation of this season’s hunts.

I have picked 45 pictures from different locations and from many different angles for us (including me) to enjoy once again this incredible gift of the universe.

I’m so incredibly happy that so many of our friends got to finally experience and photograph auroras yesterday night! 🎉 the perfect atmospheric conditions summed up plus clear skies (which is rare this year in Helsinki), the aurora storm got to G2 level and it was visible even in Estonia. … For @sallapyy and I, this aurora hunt was such a roller coaster 😂 I forgot my tripod in the pier when taking the ferry to @suomenlinnaofficial. Then I had to go back to mainland with the next ferry to pick it up (luckily we live in Finland, the tripod was still where I left it!) and jumped back again to the ferry, Suomenlinna island bound. All this while Salla was location scouting in the island, then the show started, victory. … 📷: @sallapyy

Sweden

 

Abisko, Sweden, northern lights aurora borealis
Abisko, Sweden. In here you can really see why Abisko is ranked by many sources including NASA as top 1 place to see Northern Lights. The atmospheric effect of Lake Torneträsk and the surrounding huge mountains give Abisko a microclimate, locals call it the “Blue Hole”. So even if it is really cloudy during the day, clear nights can come out from nowhere.
