Canon XT, 1600 iso, Av mode. In the local Inupiaq dialect the northern lights are known as kiugzat. Local tradition tells that if you whistle or yell at the lights the spirits in them will come, chop your head off, and play "Eskimo football" (a form of full contact soccer) with it. It is also the schools mascot.
