Terje Sorgjerd: Amazing Photographer's Auroras Video

When powerful solar storms sent massive waves of charged particles streaking toward Earth last month, Terje Sorgjerd was ready.

The Norwegian landscape photographer was hunkered down in the frigid northern reaches of his home country, above the Arctic Circle near the Russian border.

He spent a week up there capturing the super-charged aurora borealis — also known as the northern lights — that blazed up when the particles barreled into Earth's atmosphere and magnetic field.

The result of his efforts is an amazing two-minute video he dubbed "The Aurora," which went viral almost as soon as Sorgjerd posted it on the website Vimeo in late March. [Watch the amazing aurora video]
