Alaskan Photographer Captures Mysterious Spiral in Sky Among Northern Lights

The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, is a breathtaking natural phenomenon that has captured the imaginations of people around the world for centuries. With its shimmering curtains of green and blue light dancing across the night sky, it’s no wonder that so many artists and photographers have sought to capture its beauty.
Recently, a photographer in Alaska made an extraordinary discovery while photographing the Northern Lights – a mysterious spiral shape that appeared among the glowing green and blue lights.
Todd Salat, who has spent years capturing the Aurora Borealis in all its splendor, was stunned by the appearance of this unexpected shape.
When he got home and started examining the picture more closely, he discovered that it captured the exhaust of a rocket engine, that was launched 3 hours earlier by SpaceX in California.
The Transporter-7 mission is part of SpaceX’s rideshare mission, and Salat managed to capture a very unique moment in time, resulting in a stunning picture for posterity.

The spiral caused by a SpaceX rocket was also caught on film. It’s visible in the aurora at around 09:50 UT.
