These amazing pictures and videos show the aurora,  also known as the Northern Lights, which appeared over Kirkenes-Fjell.

Norway is well known as a country to view this stunning phenomenon, but rarely has it been seen in such fantastic clarity.

Auroras are visible all over Norway, but it is best to view them in the north, behind the Arctic Circle.

If you are planning on visiting Norway, the best time that you’ll get a chance to see the Aurora is in late autumn and early spring.
Best viewed in the night sky between 6.00pm and 1.00am, it is much easier to observe and wonder at it’s beauty.

If you’re not planning on visiting Norway in the near future, nothing is lost. Watch the amazing clips captured on film by Sebastian Voltmer.
