This stunning picture could well be the best ever taken of an Aurora. It was snapped by German photographer Sebastian Voltmer and provides a truly dazzling atmospheric sight.

A professional astronomer writing for Nasa’s picture of the day site – APOD – said: ‘The wide angle image, horizontally compressed, captured an unexpected auroral display that stretched across the sky one month ago over eastern Norway.’
