Northern Lights Time-Lapse Video Shows Off B.C.'s Skeena Region

Catching the northern lights in B.C. takes a little planning and a little luck, but B.C. photographer Derek Flynn proves that it's oh-so-worthwhile.

Flynn, who lives in Terrace, B.C., posted a stunning time-lapse video on Monday (March 2) that shows how the aurora borealis really move in the Skeena region, about 1,200 kilometres north of Vancouver. (Watch it above!)

"I never really paid attention to the northern lights until I was helping build a cabin in a place called Maxhla Didaat," he told The Huffington Post B.C. in an email. "Never to this day have I laid eyes on more vivid and intense northern lights... I was hooked."

Flynn said the film was shot over several nights during the past couple of months, and adds that a longer video is in the works.
