Aurora Over Greenland

This aurora arched from horizon to horizon. Visible straight through the center of the aurora, and found with a careful eye, is the Big Dipper and the surrounding constellation of the Big Bear (Ursa Major). The brightest orb on the far right is the Moon, while Jupiter can be seen even further to the right.
