Photo by @babaktafreshi The World at Night (TWAN) project View of aurora borealis reflected in a fjord near Tromso, northern Norway. Bright planet Jupiter and the Pleiades star cluster appear above the mountain. Hundreds of kilometers up, energetic solar particles trapped in the Earth magnetic filed, collide with molecules in the atmosphere, causing them to emit light.
