I get a lot of people sending me time lapse videos, and to be honest, I love it! They're so much fun to watch, and so many of them actually show the sky above us in a new and interesting way. At the very least, they're lovely and invoke a sense of amazement. Even though this next one was made as essentially a travel advertisement for Sweden (it was filmed in Abisko National Park), I'll allow it - after all, they're hoping to get more people to see the aurorae! And the video is amazing: over 13 minutes of pretty cool footage of the northern lights.
