Northern Lights Dance Across Alaskan Night Sky

A Fairbanks-based photographer captured a mesmerizing display of the aurora borealis lighting up the starry night sky over Alaska’s White Mountains.

This footage, which Andrew Witteman said he took on November 21, shows ribbons of green and purple wafting across the sky over the snowy mountain range just outside the Arctic Circle.

“The auroras aren’t always bright enough to shine through the full moon, but on this night, they certainly were,” Witteman said. Credit: Andrew Witteman via Storyful
