Aurora Borealis, Auroras, Northern or Southern lights or even just Aurora are all the same... They are different ways of calling the natural lights phenomenon sometimes displayed at the sky, usually at night, particularly at the Polar Regions. The aurora borealis most often happens from September to October and from March to April. The northern lights have had several names through the times and one that I thought pretty interesting was "The Dance of the Spirits".
Here we will show some great photos I found from this phenomenon on Flickr. Most of these pictures had no photoshop work on it, they are real scenes, and the ones that had photoshop was just to emphasize the lights, not to create them. At least that is what is written under the users comments at the images on Flickr. :) If you want to get more info about Aurora Borealis check out Wikipedia and for some tips to photograph it, go to this Photo Blog. Enjoy!
