See an aurora in real-time

Most videos of auroras are sped up. Enjoy the mesmerizing dance of an aurora in real time.

The Aurora…As It Actually Appeared from Alan Dyer on Vimeo.

Alan Dyer wrote to EarthSky:

I thought I would draw your attention to my latest music video that features real-time video footage of the aurora shot last week in Churchill, Manitoba.

It captures the northern lights much as the eye saw it, with true color and motion.

This is something new on the ragged edge of possibility with today’s cameras. More details are in the video’s caption at Vimeo.

Many thanks! Clear skies!

Thank you, Alan!
