aurora time lapse

This is my first attempt at a time lapse of aurora. It wasn't what I set out to do. I was trying to capture some of the Lyrid meteor shower, but the aurora were "polluting" the sky till way past my bedtime. I only managed to catch a handful of meteors in the 150 shots I took. These aurora look bright, but that's mostly due to high ISO settings and 20 second exposures.
