Photographer Joel Schat combined the lights of the aurora borealis with some clever editing to create an incredible Instagram video from his seat on an Amsterdam-bound plane on October 26. Schat was traveling to the Dutch capital from Vancouver when he was treated to the stunning light display. He told Storyful that the mesmerizing video effect, in which his Sony a7R III camera zooms in and out from the window, was created using a timelapse along with “a photo from earlier in the flight of the window layered to create the floating effect.” Schat’s accompanying post reads, “You know it’s going to be a great trip when this is your view out of the window.” Credit: joelschat via Storyful
