Photographer Shawn Malone’s time lapse video of Michigan’s northern lights has been making its way around the web over the last week or so. The video compilation features aurora borealis (commonly called “northern lights”) and other rare night sky events from Northern Michigan. If you haven’t seen it, check it out below.
This video is Shawn’s first time lapse compilation, which she cut down to over 10,000 photo frames that equal 33 scenes of various night sky events in Northern Michigan. The shots were taken throughout 2012 on both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. Below is a gallery of photos that Shawn shared with us from her adventures.
