A 360-degree panoramic view of aurora borealis over northern Norway, created from the projection of all-sky fisheye image. From the photographer: "Unexpected at the last night of December 3rd to 4th: It wasn't predicated such an intensity of northern lights all over the sky near Kirkenes/Norway at the russian border. During moon set I saw faint streamers crossing the sky from east to west. After several hours suddenly the line brightened and new streamers appeared in just several seconds - an aurora explosion!"
