Northern Lights over Longyearbyen

This panorama shows a time-lapse of the northern lights over the mountains and Longyearbreen to the south. I shot the timelapse images right before I shot the images for the 380×180 panorama.

(The aurora time-lapse does not work on most mobile devices. You need a flash capable browser.)

Longyeardalen (Longyear Valley)

Longyeardalen is located between the mountains of Platåberget and Gruvefjellet. The town of Longyearbyen is located in the lower portions of the valley, which is named after the American industrialist John Munroe Longyear. The river of Longyearelva runs through the valley. At the top of the valley you will find the Longyear glacier which is about 4.5 km long.
