Over the past few days I have been speaking with an astronomer Yuichi Takasaka who posted an ususual picture of the aurora over Canada on a nasa forum in 2016.
He titled his picture ‘Ghost Aurora over Canada’ with the following:
While braving the cold to watch the skies above northern Canada early one morning in 2013, a most unusual aurora appeared.
The astrophotographer goes on to say, to him, it either represents a ‘witch’ or the ‘goddess of dawn’ and did state or it could be just be great fantastical pareidolic interpretations.
Many in the forum commented how they had indeed seen something similar in their pictures when out photographing the auraura and such a phonemonia amongst themselves is normally given the named ‘The Angel of the Lights’, a common interpretation of the picture is, it appears to look like a angelic lady who appears to look as if a eagle is flying over her head.
Light has significant spiritual meanings associated with both angels and miracles. Some people believe Angels often appear as beings if light , and they use light’s electromagnetic energy when traveling to and from Earth and heaven. Such things like this captured is often thought as signs.
It’s no suprise that over the years, the Aurora Boreal has been surrounded by many myths and legends and ancestors seem to retell stories or how the lights wqa signs from the gods, spirits and celestial warriors.
Whether you believe it as a sign or not, there is no denaying it is a beautiful capture.
