People the world over would love to see even a glimpse of the mysterious Aurora Borealis lighting phenomena as it dances across the night sky. However, because of the Northern Lights' fickle nature, not many do. But astrophotographer Kwon O Chul not only saw the ethereal lights as they lit up the sky, he even had the chance to photograph the majestic phenomena in this dazzling series. 

Showing the audience images of the night sky filled with eerie green streaks of dancing light, Chul’s Aurora Borealis series was shot near Yellowknife in northern Canada. The Korean photographer was lucky to capture the incredibly bright auroras which illuminated the sky with veils of neon green. We see outdoor viewing tee-pees in Chul’s photographs underneath the majestic lights, which juxtaposes beautifully the natural light display.
