FINLAND ~Aurora Borealis~

And this awesome card I got as an official (FI-1274486)... "Aurora Borealis", one of the most amazing natural wonders of the world and can be seen around this time of year above the Arctic Circle ... I really would love to see it live one day... Thanks a lot Juho!

With lovely matching Aurora Borealis stamp!

The Northern Lights are created when charged particles from solar wind hit the atmosphere of the earth.The most common colours of the Northern Lights are greenish-yellow and red.

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!
