Wicked fast aurora

Photographer Tommy Richardsen called it ‘wicked fast,’ saying it started a second or 2 before he clicked the shutter button, and faded before the 13-second exposure was over.

Tommy Richardsen captured this aurora image in Nordreisa, a municipality in northern Norway, on March 2, 2017. Thanks for catching it and sharing it with us, Tommy!
