A passenger traveling recently from San Fransisco to Paris pointed his 16mm-to-35mm camera lens set-up by his airplane window (with the approval of Air France), and the result was this remarkable time-lapse video of his 11-hour flight.
Taking that Great Circle route above the polar regions, the video flies us through the aurora borealis, giving us a look at those spectacular aurora borealis/northern lights. At the end of this video, you’ll see the rig with which he snapped the 2,459 shots — one approximately every two miles. Very impressive indeed.
FYI: Lights along the northern horizon give an orange cast to the low clouds while alluring green and purple hues of the aurora borealis glow powered by energetic particles at the edge of space.
