Notes:  One of the criteria for viewing Northern Lights is a dark sky we often say if you can see the stars of the Milky Way, it is dark enough for Northern Lights. This panoramic image was photographed towards the end of the light show and the lights have quieted. As the sky grows darker, the Milky Way itself becomes part of the show, splaying its brilliance across the sky.
