North West Territories

The Northern Lights


A faint glow appears on the horizon. Slowly, soft colours of light shimmer across the sky. The colours bend and weave and seem to dance around the sky before slowly fading. The night sky returns to darkness. You have just witnessed the display of awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis.

Fall Aurorol Odyssey
