Gorgeous Aurora Over Finland [Video]

As readers will recall, the sun has been pretty dang active as of late making this a particularly good year for spotting the Northern Lights. This video, shot by photographer Antti Pietikäinen, gives us a glimpse of the show over Muonio, Finland last night. These amazing lights were probably sparked by an M-class flare which shot out of the sun on March 8 from the same active region — sunspot 1429 — that spat out last weeks enormous X-class flare. I think I speak for all of us too far south to see the aurora when I say we’re jealous.
