Stunning shot of a wide, green sweep of aurora borealis across a deep indigo sky. Spruce trees in silhouette line the bottom of the photo. Did You Know?
The Aurora Borealis (or Northern Lights) are visible throughout much of Alaska during the winter months. The aurora is caused by charged particles from the sun colliding with the gases in the atmosphere, creating these spectacular light shows.
