The Aurora over Norway

Here, have some beautiful high-res time lapse photography by Bjørnar Eilertsen in Kristiansund, Norway, on January 24th, following the recent coronal mass ejection event. That’s “solar flare” to non-geeks.

There’s even more pretty pictures and videos at The Atlantic.

    Whoooooooo nice.

    Norwaaaaaaay…I take geeky breaks by playing with Google Earth. I started playing with the fjords about three weeks ago, and I’m still at it – I can’t tear myself away. Norway is so crazy beautiful it’s painful.
