On January 26th just after midnight the University of Alaska, Fairbanks launched 4 sounding rockets into the Northern Lights to study the interaction of solar winds and Earth’s atmosphere. Using different gasses they were able to make a glowing cloud of sorts that would allow them to study this interaction with imagery.

The temperature at the time of this video was around -43ºF
This was filmed with a Sony a7S and a Atomos Shogun.
The fluid head tripod wasn't very fluid at these temps, thus some of the camera shake.
We documented most of the event but have cut it down to a few digestible clips. We may produce a full video later from this event.
