Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis, Lapland, Finland, in the winter of 2011 - Watch the magic mysterious lights!
Amazing video of beautiful Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) shot in Finnish Lapland in the winter of 2011.
Sami legend says the fox runs across the night sky, lighting it up with sparks flying from its tail that sweeps the heavens. The modern Finnish term "revontulet", the fires of the fox, derives from this myth.
The further north you go, the greater the chances of catching the Northern Lights. Saariselkä, Kilpisjärvi and Inari along with the rest of Northern Lapland are recommendable places in Finland. In Helsinki and the south, the aurorae can be seen on roughly 20 nights a year, away from city lights.
The best time of day is an hour or two before and after midnight.
