Northern Lights shine in incredible time-lapse

LILY BAY STATE PARK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- With news Mother Nature was going to put on a Northern Lights display Mike Taylor headed to one of his favorite spots to capture them -Moosehead Lake, located just above the 45 degree latitude point.

The brightly-colored lights of the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are created by flares emitted by the sun, turning into solar winds and combining with the earth's atmosphere to create charged particles that emit light said Taylor.

He captured this video which is comprised of approximately 1,400 still frames taken between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. on June 23.
