It’s a sight many dream of seeing – the magical Northern Lights. Videographer Chad Blakey used a time-lapse technology to capture what many witnesses described as one of the most spectacular shows seen in recent years.

Officially known as the Aurora Borealis, they occur when charged particles emitted by the sun during flare activity, reach the Earth’s atmosphere and collide with its gases.

The most common colour is green but pinks blues reds and whites have been observed.

Blakely hopes his footage will inspire interest from amateur photographers.
