Green and pink auroras dance in Lapland sky

According to the local photographer who captured the lights, a minor geomagnetic storm occurred before midnight with the sky exploding with colors.

He said the aurora erupted twice within 15 minutes and was topped by pink auroras dancing on the northern horizon, which he said was a "rare and special sight."

The natural light show, known as aurora borealis, took place above the wilderness in the Finnish region of Lapland, near the country's border with Norway and Sweden where they experience freezing -30°C temperatures.
