Brilliant Aurora Borealis Shines Above Greenland

A few weeks ago, folks blessed with relatively northern proximity and a clear night sky were treated to a view of some seasonally expansive auroras. In Greenland, Denmark’s big and frosty foster child of a country, residents and visitors have long enjoyed some of the northern hemisphere’s most stunning displays of heavenly lights. The aurora borealis, or northern lights, most often take the form of green curtains painting a dark and starry night sky.

And just in case you want to book your ticket now: Air Greenland.
