VIDEO: Time lapse of aurora borealis in northern Norway

CLEVELAND - Named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for wind, the northern lights glow green in the sky.

Anna Possberg posted her nearly five minute time lapse video of the spectacular arctic sky light show to Vimeo.

Possberg said the night skies over Norway were so "dramatically unstable," she was only able to see the aurora four nights. She said the other four evenings the sky was too overcast.

People who have seen Possberg's time lapse video have called it the best shots of the solar activity they have ever seen. One person called it "impressive fireworks of Mother Nature."

Set to music by Justin Durban, Possberg's shots in the sky were taken using a Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera.
