The Big Dipper in Iceland sky. This unusual type of flashing northern lights is known as Pulsating Aurora. Although it’s faster in this timelapse video, even in realtime they shift and brighten in patches every second, rather than the typical arcs and streaks. Auroras are caused by energetic electrons speeding down into Earth’s atmosphere and colliding with the thin air in the boundary of space and our atmosphere.⁣ ⁣On the Earth is the iconic Skogafoss waterfall. ⁣You can join me in 2020 Iceland Aurora Photo Workshops in March or September: ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣(link in my profile )⁣⁣ ⁣The soundtrack is Red North by @alirainimusic of ⁣ ⁣⁣ #saveournightsky #aurora #astrophotography #babakworkshops #iceland @twanight
