Blue Ridge Parkway Daily shared Landscapes of the Blue Ridge's photo.

Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights, made a rare appearance over the Blue Ridge Mountains last month. Landscapes of the Blue Ridge took over 100 images, each one for 25 long seconds, and combined them together into this stunning composite.

This photo was taken from the Blue Ridge Parkway overlook "View Purgatory Mountain" at Milepost 92.1. For a 360-degree view of the overlook, visit www.virtualblueridge.com/parkway-place/view-purgatory-mt/.
