Northern lights dance over Finnish Lapland

According to the local photographer who captured the lights over the frozen Toras-Sieppi lake, they were visible right after the sunset and were most vibrant after 2200 local time (2000GMT).

He said the "magical" dance of the northern lights, also known as aurora borealis, lasted well over an hour.

March is statistically the best month to see the northern lights due to augmented solar wind conditions.
