WATCH: Photographer Leaves Camera Outside and Gets Insane Footage of Northern Lights

Scientists are predicting that the next 18 months will offer the best opportunities to see the Northern Lights in the past 20 years—and this has certainly proved to be the case for Elias, a digital creator and photographer from Germany.

Elias travels the world in a converted Land Rover Discovery, exploring some extremely remote locations. He left his camera recording overnight and managed to capture vibrant, neon green shots of the aurora borealis dancing across the sky during his time in northern Finland.

Elias’s Instagram is full of amazing photos and videos of the aurora. He’s seen the Northern Lights in Tornio, Sweden, and parts of Norway too. Scandinavian countries are among the best places to catch a sighting, but the Northern Lights can also be seen in the U.S., in spots such as Colorado and sections of Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota, which is known for being one of the best places in North America to witness the phenomenon. 

On a very chilly evening, reaching as low as 19 degrees Fahrenheit (-7 degrees Celsius), Elias got this footage on his Sony A7S II camera using a Sony 20 mm F1.8 lens, and the resulting Instagram reel has been viewed 1.8 million times and counting. Check it out here:

Photographing the night sky can be a challenging task for photographers, with different lenses and cameras offering varying results. No two auroras are the same, so you might need to experiment with a few different set-ups to capture the perfect shot.
