As seen on the National Geographic News a vibrant green aurora flashes in the clear night sky behind the "Tykky" sculptures, or "frozen" trees, in Finland's Riisitunturi National Park. The Riisitunturi forests are especially well known for their snow-covered trees, which appear almost surreal under moonlight.
