This is NOT time lapse: the Aurora Borealis in real time

This breathtaking video of the Aurora Borealis is not a time lapse video — this is what it looks like in real time. It was filmed in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada by astro-photographer Kwon O Chul, and not only displays the bright northern lights and these rather magical-looking glowing teepees, but also sets them to the awed, ambient sounds of tourists in the cold night air.
