Your views of stars and space
Celestial dances of the Aurora
- nsaidi, CNN iReport producer
Why do we long for those beauties which are so hard to see? The northern lights may appear as a normal phenomenon to the inhabitants of those northern territories where the aurora borealis occur. Yet for me, as a German, they are and will always be a special surreal beauty coming from the outer space. While the Norwegians hurried by car to their homes I couldn't but stop my car, jump out of it and stare for hours to the dancing lights. Forgotten were the harsh wind and the freezing temperatures while I kneed in awe in front of this celestial spectacle. The lights would shyly peek behind a mountain just to unexpectedly unfold into green ribbons, veils and explosions all over the night sky.
