Congrats on this wonderful winner Paul! It took me years to see an aurora and my dream finally came through in September in Norway! They are magical! #1719280

Thank you Margaret! Congratulations on fulfilling your dream. I’m fortunate that I can and photograph see them on the shore of Lake Superior (this is less than 20 miles from my house) but I have always wanted to have the chance to photograph a better display in Norway or Iceland; that must have been an amazing experience. And they are magical! #11744197
