Astrophotographer Captures Stunning Images of Auroras Over the Northwest Territories
When the night sky began to fill with green streaks of dancing light, astrophotographer Kwon O Chul turned his camera upwards to capture the dazzling display. Located near Yellowknife in northern Canada, the auroras were so incredibly bright the photographer needed only seconds to capture the luminous phenomenon, which is caused when solar winds are pulled into the earth's atmosphere by magnetic force & the sky illuminates with a powerfully mysterious veil of colors that move & flow overhead.
