North Pole photographer Sean Kurdziolek specializes in taking stunning photos of the aurora borealis with clients.


He described his process in a 2016 series KTVA produced called “Chasing the Lights.


On an outing with clients Monday, he captured a vivid display of aurora corona dancing overhead in real-time. The display occurred around 1 a.m., according to Kurdziolek.


He said it was the best show he’s seen all season, a season that will soon end as the daylight grows longer.


“The corona is considered the most spectacular form of a rayed aurora, appearing overhead with all shafts converging to a center point,” according to a report from NASA. 


“Preserving the Aurora Borealis through my lens gives me the opportunity to be out in nature and witnessing all its beauty,” Kurdziolek wrote on his website.
