FINLAND ~The Northern Lights~

This fantastic card I got as an official (FI-1514195)... "Aurora Borealis", one of the most amazing and mystical natural wonders of the world that I really would love to see live one day...the colors are amazing...a luminous green! Thanks a lot Sari!:D

The Northern Lights are flaming in the frost nights on the northern hemisphere.

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 messengers of God. The Northern Lights were one of the last unsolved mysteries of the natural world!
