English: A wide view over Storfjorden (a part of Lyngen fjord) in a winter night in 2012 March. Some Aurora borealis (known as the northern lights) are running across the sky. The summits lighted by the Moon on the other side of the fjord belong to the Lyngen Alps (Lyngsfjellan). Also the planets Jupiter and Venus are quite near to each other (the bright dots, center left).
