Photographer's Note

This 30 second exposure was taken at Kakslauttanen resort which is about 30 minutes away from Ivalo and 250kms north of the arctic circle. We stayed 3 nights and luckily on 2 of them had good viewing of the Northern lights. The Northern Lights are caused by collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun's atmosphere. The most common auroral color, a pale yellowish-green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth.
