In a peaceful evening twilight of northern Norway on March 20, 2013, Comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) appears with a sudden burst of aurora borealis or the northern lights over a fjord near Tromso. See this scene in an enchanting timelapse video. I can hardly describe you by any picture how elegant this scene was to the eyes.

    Comet? Where? I can’t find it. I just see the aurora.

    Julio, the comet was small to unaided eyes and wide angle lenses, but clearly visible right above the mountains on the right side of the image. See it in close-up on the linked video.
