Description

The Sun emits a constant stream of electrons and protons, the so-called solar wind which blows continuously towards the Earth and out into space. These particles enter the Earth’s upper atmosphere at the Auroral Zone, creating the Aurorae. The Aurora grows stronger and stronger, it disappears, then appears again. Gone again. For a few seconds or minutes, it covers more than half of the sky. It can even cover the whole sky. Sometimes, you feel like you don’t need to do anything. You don’t need to press the shutter button, you don’t need to speak, you don’t need to blink. You just want to see how everything is transformed by the Aurora. This image has been shortlisted on the Astronomy Photography of The Year 2013 contest.
