Spectacular Video Captures 2 Rare & Beautiful Natural Phenomena At Once
By Dorothy Tan, 20 Aug 2013
Beautiful natural phenomena, such as the rainbow, are often rare as they only occur under specific conditions—their serendipitous nature makes them a delight to witness.
Photographer Maciej Winiarczyk was lucky enough to capture not one, but two, rare celestial events during a recent time-lapse shoot in Caithness, Scotland.
Having set out to shoot noctilucent clouds—the highest clouds in the world that are made entirely of ice crystals—he was surprised with a stunning show of the Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis) that played out at the same time.
The resulting time-lapse video is a wonderful display of the beauty that Mother Earth can conjure up when one least expects it—watch it below and be awed.
