The stunning beauty of one of nature’s most spectacular events has been captured in this series of spell-binding images.
On special nights far from the equator, the sky is illuminated by a dazzling, celestial light show.
The aurora borealis and aurora australis are caused when cosmic radiation hits electrically charged particles in Earth’s atmosphere.
The spectacular results have been captured in a series of 25 winning images selected in the Capture the Atlas Northern Lights photography competition.
Winners includes images taken in countries including the United States, Russia, Finland, Norway, Iceland, Australia, Canada, and Antarctica.
They show mesmerizing bands of luminous green light playing in the night sky above icy fjords, snow-capped pine forests, and iceberg crammed seas.
One of the images, taken by photographer Benjamin Eberhard, looks like something out of a sci-fi movie.
The image, titled “Antarctic Night,” shows a vast sky streaked with bands of green, orange, and yellow above the futuristic looking Ice Cube Neutrino Observatory.
