Aurore Boréale, Pôle Nord

The Aurora Borealis is one of the most spectacular natural phenomenons one can have the pleasure of witnessing. The dance of color across the sky has to do with electrons from solar wind interacting with the atmosphere, but it will always feel like magic.

This is awesome. Astrophotographer Göran Strand took his 30 gigabytes of image data of the incredible aurora he shot on March 17 (which we shared here) and re-tooled everything to fit into an interactive virtual reality-type video where the viewer can move and pan around in any direction. You can watch below, or click here to see the full screen version and be transported to a small town in northern Sweden called Östersund.
