You've never seen the Aurora like this

If you've never been up North to see the mystical Aurora, you're missing the greatest show on Earth. This video was filmed in Yellowknife and Hay River, Northwest Territories, using the latest in Aurora videography – a 36 megapixel DSLR camera, with the images played in sequence to bring the scene dramatically to life. It's just a tiny slice of the action you'll witness nearly any night of the autumn or winter in the Northwest Territories, the most vivid Aurora-viewing hotspot on the planet.
