Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) occur in the high northern lattitudes. They are quite rare but spectacular.
They are sometimes seen as far South as UK.
My friends in Sweden have set up a webcam using a fish eye lens to record the sky.
The resulting images, over 24 hours have been reduced to a couple of minutes.
