Aurora Borealis time lapses

Yeah, amazing.

I wonder how speeded up the footage is.

I often think about cave men (i don't think it's a fetish) and i just wonder what they made of the lights!? I'm surprised there aren't more [any] folk tales amongst northern cultures about them; there may be just that i don't know of them.

Good find craig.

Northern Lights and Sex


 


The Aurora Borealis have also been linked to fertility and childbirth, and in Chinese and Japanese cultures it is still believed that a child conceived under the northern lights will be blessed with good fortunes.


 


In old Icelandic folklore it was also believed that northern lights would ease the pain of childbirth. At the same time though, they believed that pregnant women looking at the Aurora would have cross eyed children.

James. There are some moving objects on the road. Can't quite think properly but I wondered if it was possible to estimate the speeded upness by the moving objects? However, the distance is missing, even if the speed was chosen at 30-70 mph. But by the look of the vehicles moving, it doesn't look greatly speeded up. You can see them disappear then reappear slightly later in a new position further along.
