Ruslan Merzlyakov posted this photo to EarthSky Facebook. It’s a delicate aurora in the long polar night, seen from the island of Spitsbergen, largest and only permanently populated island of the Svalbard archipelago in northern Norway, in the Arctic Ocean. Ruslan said he captured this photo at 3 o’clock in the afternoon. He wrote:

That day I felt myself like in a fairytale.

Thank you, Ruslan!
