New Aurora Pictures: “Severe” Sun Storm Brightens Skies [PICS]
It would be tough to compare the natural beauty of auroras with anything else nature has to offer. The display was nothing short of spectacular on Monday, September 26th, when a sun storm unleashed amazing beauty in the skies around the world. This photo collection on Nat Geo is exceptional and beyond mere description. You have to see it to believe it. Our gratitude goes to @dragan_03 for giving us the perfect way to start off this Eye Candy edition.

Video of the Week
Photographer Dan Newton amazes with this time lapse video composed from still photos, very nicely put together with some pretty decent music – “Loud Pipes” by Ratatat. The stills are included at the end. A work of art.
