Check out this incredible Northern lights phenomenon referred to as "Steve."

During the shoot of my Chasing Aurora video, was the first time I had ever seen a white / pink pillar of the aurora spiral through the sky. I remember yelling with excitement to Jeff and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. These four images show a brief progression from when the pillar first began to appear and eventually faded from view. I was so excited while shooting this that it took every bit of self control to not stop my timelapse sequence to triple check everything looked okay. I had no idea how long something like this would be visible, so I had to trust that I got it right and wait things out.
