Watch The Northern Lights In Stunning HD Timelapse Video

Photographer Joe Capra travels the world to document natural beauty for his blog Scientifantastic. In his latest piece, Capra journeyed to Greenland and Iceland to capture the arctic Aurora over 10 nights. The final product is gorgeous in that highest-of-the-high-res way.

Auroras occur when charged particles (electrons and protons) cause ionisation in the atmosphere. The subsequent tripped out light show proceeds to give those in the frigid arctic something to look forward to during those desolate nights. Thanks to Capra, you can enjoy it right now from the warm comfort of the internet.
