Spectacular Northern Lights Time-Lapse Video Will Make You Wish You Lived In Norway

Posted: Updated:

Book your ticket to Norway, folks.

If this is what the northern lights look like over one of Norway's fjords, it seems like a pretty beautiful place to live.

Nature photographer Øyvind Schei captured photos of the aurora borealis in Trondheim throughout 2013 and decided to create a 4-minute time-lapse of the sight. The stunning video of the northern lights over Trondheimsfjord -- an inlet of the Norwegian sea -- features images from January, March and October.

(Story continues below.)

More recently, Schei also captured footage of the dancing lights and shared the short film with his friends on Facebook over the weekend.

Created by the collision of charged particles in Earth's atmosphere, auroras are visible in both the northern and southern hemispheres. However, in the Southern Hemisphere, the natural light display is called the aurora australis.
