The Northern Lights make their appearance in the Northern Hemisphere of planet Earth every year. They are also called the Aurora Borealis (named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the North wind, Boreas, by Pierre Gassendi in 1621). If you ask me, the name is a bit long, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Northern Lights are one of the most stunning natural phenomena on Earth.
I’ve never seen the Norhtern Lights, but I would not mind to. Some of the photos I’ve seen of them are absolutely stunning. Seeing the Northern Lights is definitely on my bucket list. If you ask me that list is getting quite long, but who cares? Apparently life only starts at 40 and I’m only 35 now.
In today’s Daily Cool Photo a lonely cabin is illuminated under the Northern Lights in Finmmark, Norway. The photo and caption is by Michelle Schantz and was entered into the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest for 2012. I think this is a stunning photo and worthy of being named the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 21st of August 2012.
