  2. OMG we live on such a lovely planet! It really needs to be paved over and made into an amusement park.

  5. Seeing the Aurora in person is one of the few items on my bucket list. Thanks for this video. Pretty pretty pretty.

  7. In the hands of a true artist, time lapse photography and motion control cameras can to amazing things...

  11. Why is every video of the Aurora sped up? I've never seen one at actual speed so I don't really have an idea of what they'll look like when I finally do see them. I'm hope it's not a letdown like Hollywood Boulevard was :-)

  12. Isn't the only real connection between the Milky Way and Aurora B. a really clear night? (Someone gets a C- in Science 102.)
