We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Check out this great collection of Northern light pictures, taking by ordinary people living in areas where the sun storms have resulted in the most beautiful Northern light spectacle this winter. This past week, there were two solar storms, back to back, resulting in the biggest solar flare in the past 6 years. Solar storms produce a massive amount of charged particles that the Earth's magnetic field deflects towards the poles. The interaction of these charged particles with the atmosphere results in these colorful auroras. Go to the link to see many beautiful photographs!

See all the pictures here.

In the big picture above: Eagle Lights: The central light ribbon in this image resembles the head and beak of a bird, flanked by a radiant wingspan. The photo was taken in Grøtfjord, close to Tromsø in northern Noway. Image: Bjørn Jørgensen

I see an angel flapping its wings in that aurora, does it mean angels exist? :-)

I've watched them all with fascination; I believe no form of art can come close to this..

(I especially favoured the ones where there were no signs of human inhabitations even if these solar flares were just amazing)

WOW !!!
