Selected as one of the Best 2013 Space Photos by the National Geographic News, the northern lights or aurora borealis swirls over a fjord in the Norwegian Sea near Tromso, northern Norway. A mix of moonlight, aurora, and a nearby village illuminate the landscape. The Pleiades Star Cluster (the Seven Sisters) appears on the upper left. See this view in timelapse video. Click on the constellation icon above the image to see a closer contrasted view of the aurora swirl. Babak Tafreshi,
