USA ~Alaska-Northern Lights~

My second "Aurora Borealis" this week...This view is even more amazing,the colour is a luminous green and with that moon and mountains, just wonderful!!
I do wish I can have the opportunity to witness the amazing Northern Lights someday!
Nice stamps too.

The phenomenon of aurora is an interaction between the Earth's magnetic field and solar wind.

There have been many myths about the Northern Lights.The people of Norway thought the lights were dead warriors fighting.The Vikings thought they were female messengers of the God Odin, to mark those to be killed in battle. The people of Laps and Finland believed they were messangers of God. The Nothern Lights were one of the last unsloved mysteries of the natural world!
