Flying through the Northern lights is one of the most magical things that can ever happen to a human.
Sighting the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights, is a rare and unique experience for anyone. Spanish acro pilot Horacio Llorens, however, had an experience even more rare – viewing the phenomenon while paragliding.
“Thousands of years ago, people looked up and saw the Northern Lights, and thought they were magic,” Llorens told Red Bull. “It feels like clouds are in front of you, 500m away, but in reality they’re 15,000m over your head.”
Struggling with -15 degree temperatures on the ground near Trømso, Norway, the glider put on a wetsuit and battery-heated gloves, powered up his paramotor, and then took off on an amazing a night flight in the ethereal green waves of the Aurora.
