Maine is one of the best places in America (other than Alaska) to watch the Northern Lights! Check out this video from Mike Taylor Photography on Vimeo - it's a time-lapse of the natural phenomenon at one of Maine's most famous lakes, Moosehead.

From the video description on Vimeo:

With news that Mother Nature was going to put on a Northern Lights display we headed to one of our favorite spots to view and capture them – Moosehead Lake, Maine - located just above the 45 degree latitude point. The show started just before 10PM. It ebbed and flowed through the night until almost 3AM - this was easily the longest and most impressive aurora display we have witnessed.

The Visual: a huge green arc with dancing spikes and pulsating waves of light that stretched overhead & over 180 degrees across the sky. At a few different points it was a variable rainbow of colors. All of this was being perfectly reflected in the smooth-as-glass water right in front of us."
