Higher than the highest mountain lies the realm of the aurora. Auroras rarely reach below 60 kilometers, and can range up to 1000 kilometers. Aurora light results from energetic electrons and protons striking atoms and molecules in the Earth’s atmosphere. Somewhat uncommon, an auroral corona appears as a center point for a surrounding display and may occur when an aurora develops directly overhead, or when auroral rays are pointed nearly toward the observer. This picturesque but brief green and purple aurora exhibition occurred last month high above Kvaløya, Tromsø, Norway. TheSessøyfjorden fjord runs through the foreground, while numerous stars are visible far in the distance.
Brazilian collective Bicicleta Sem Freio just returned from a month long tour in Europe organized by JustKids. Dubbed the “JustKids Euro Tour”, Bicicleta Sem Freio stopped by six different cities to bring their good vibes to the residents. Passing through London, Berlin, Pinerolo, Gaeta, Terracina and Turin, BSF worked their magic on a series of 5 spectacular Street Art murals and worked with an old Italian master printer on an amazing screen print (last image, above). See more of their murals from the Euro Tour below.
