Auroras are caused by solar activity, and it is expected that a solar max (the period of greatest solar activity) for our current solar cycle will happen between this year and the next. Noticing an increase in such activity, Salomonsen from Tromsø, Norway pointed his cameras to the aurora-filled skies in the northern parts of this homeland. 150,000 exposures later and he had created a most ethereal time-lapse video, Celestial Lights.
Celestial Lights is Salomonsen’s second video project. His first, In The Land Of The Northern Lights, can be seen after the jump.
