Wow! Northern lights and the Great Dipper!! This could be one of the ultimate window views that I could expect. Mother Nature surely does know how to pose for photographs. However, this is changing forever and could disappear suddenly as we are now traveling more than 700 km/h with 10 km off the ground. Definitely, this is a damn difficult image to capture where my passion for photography comes from. The red cast on the wing comes from the anti-collision light as I managed to synchronize my photo with it.

Outstanding! The symmetry of Northern Lights running parallel with the beautifully illuminated wing is very cool. Bonus points for the stars.

So you caught the northern lights, at night, through a window, and caught the beacon, and it still turned out this amazing? Wow!

The red hue of the strobe on the wing along with the bold green of the Northern Lights look surreal against the solid black background

Nice contrast between the red light on the wings and the green of the aurora, and I like the way that the wing and lights parallel each other.

Incredible. Even though it was a moment in time, it seems to capture the speed involved by having the Nothern Lights at the leading edge but nothing past the trailing edge. Very good shot!!

Dear lord! That is an amazing photograph of an aurora. Great detail also. Purely amazing and astounding. There it goes to show how what you can see while at altitude up near the north.

This is one of those "one of a kind" photos. If now one of a kind, at least very special. The northen lights must be, as mentioned, very hard to capture. Synch it with the anti-collision light makes the illumination feel almost magic. Fantastic!
