Man Filming Night Sky Gets An Unexpected Surprise

A man gets an unexpected surprise while filming the night sky.

What he captured will take your breath away.

When award-winning photographer and videographer Maciej Winiarczyk filmed this video, he intended to capture a time-lapse of the Milky Way’s motion during earth’s rotation.

What he got instead was otherworldly footage that captured a rare sighting: an alluring Aurora Borealis passing over the Milky Way.

Winiarczyk is no alien to gathering twilight footage.

He is known for capturing the night-time sky, but he was totally caught off guard by this event, especially since he’s been trying to capture these northern lights for the last three years.

The night sky guru filmed the remarkable display while visiting Scotland, and had no idea that he would encounter both sights at once.

The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, are quite the sight to behold.

Seeing this phenomenon has definitely been on my bucket list for years, and not just because this display is said to be breathtakingly beautiful, but also because of its cultural significance.

A portion of Inuits believe they can see their ancestors’ spirits dancing within the Aurora Borealis, while some Norse texts reflect the belief that it is a fire-bridge between heaven and earth, built by the Gods. Given the Aurora’s mystery and beauty, it’s no surprise to me that I’m not alone in wanting to witness it.

In the video below, you can see the spectacular movement of the Milky Way amid a breathtakingly beautiful horizon and bed of stars. Notice the opalescent green light begins to dance at the distance at 10-second mark.

This rare occurrence happens when the sun’s charged particles enter Earth’s atmosphere and collide with gaseous particles.
