Colourful auroras dance across Arctic sky

For two nights in a row, the wintery sky in northern Finland was lit up with spectacular displays of northern lights.

The show coloured the sky with green, pink and white lights forming quickly changing patterns.

Footage of the light show was captured by an enthusiast from Rovaniemi, around 420 km south of Kilpisjarvi, who said the Tuesday night northern lights had been "really special".

Spring is one of the best times to see the northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, because of augmented solar wind activity taking place in the Arctic Circle that time of year.
