14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
North Pole's Swirl

When I arrived at Chena Lake, it was silent. No aurora could be seen. Suddenly a ray of green light landed straight on the pond, then the show started. It was the most fantastic show I ever seen. The Aurora was dancing above the pond for 2 hours. What a breathtaking moment!
