Sunday Canadian Travel Video: The Northern Lights in the Northwest Territories

While I have yet to make the long and arduous journey up to the North West Territories, I’ve found myself going through videos and photos of some of the sights and sounds of the region for years. One of my favourite natural wonders of the north is the Aurora Borealis. This video gives you a brief glimpse at the colours & shapes you may see in the skies of Northern Canada. High 5′s go out to for capturing this insanely awesome time-lapse video.

    Named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas, Caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere - I love Wikipedia. 
    Anyways the Northern Lights have always been a fascination of mine and are often visible in the northern skies of Saskatchewan. Our research shows that many international guests  to our country are enthralled by the phenomena – he Japanese tourist especially.

    Good find Corbin!
