Lights in Motion: Aurora of Denali

“Lights in Motion”
A 2012 time-lapse compilation of the Aurora Borealis with original composition, “Coronal Mass Ejection,” by Peter Van Zandt Lane.
The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, has intrigued people throughout time. It was no different for seasonal Park Ranger Jake Frank when he first saw them in 2011. He wanted capture the magic of the lights on screen to share with everyone. Close to sixty hours were volunteered, shooting still photos in subzero temperatures. Some nights were so cold, -42 degrees F, that the camera only worked for about fifteen minutes.
