Travelers were stunned this weekend to spot strange blue lights appear in the Arctic skies. The blue lights appeared in two clear spots in the sky causing stargazers to look on in wonder.
These stunning displays of the Northern Lights above Lapland were captured by photography experts at Lights Over Lapland.
Founder of Lights Over Lapland, Chad Blakley, said; “I first spotted the lights on our Aurora Web Cam which continually captures the night sky above Abisko in Sweden, and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It was completely out of this world!”
Since the sighting, social media has been awash with speculation, however the phenomenon has since been attributed to a scientific experiment from the Andøya Space Center in Norway which launched two rockets that released metallic powder into atmosphere inside the Northern Lights.
“Although every experience with the Northern Lights is different – this one was a complete mystery and surprise even for me,” adds Lights Over Lapland founder Chad Blakley who has been photographing the Northern Lights for the last 10 years. “It just goes to show that there is always something new to experience on a Northern Lights holiday.”
