Last week's solar storm made for a spectacular aurora borealis display over Northern Lower Michigan Monday night. Photographer Guy Strong, 26, photographed the display and created this mesmerizing 17-second time-lapse video. It shows clouds rolling by and waves of pink, blue and green flashing across the sky above Good Bay Harbor.
"I started shooting at 11:30 p.m. Sunday and finished Monday at 2 a.m.," Strong told SKYE.
He estimates using 258 photographs in the video.
Strong figures Monday's display was the third or fourth he's seen in the area this year. He's been photographing night skies since he was 19. Monday's display wasn't as vibrant to the naked eye as it appears in the images, he said. That's common. The secret to capturing the northern lights, he said, is a long exposure. These exposures were each 30 seconds.
