Aurora Borealis

I have always heard of the great spectacle that is to be in Finland for the not so balmy summer nights but being able to watch a real Aurora Borealis, but until I saw this video, I wasn't absolutely stunned and feeling like jumping on a plane ASAP to be able to see this show up close.
The Aurora Borealis is the natural light display in the sky, particularly in the high latitude regions, (Artic and Antartic) caused by the collision of charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere (thermosphere).
That is Mother Nature showing off, at it's best...
