Norway 2009 – Aurora over Andøya

Northern lights seen at sunset from the mountains overlooking the village of Bleik on the island of Andøya, northern Norway, photographed by Roy Samuelsen on 2008 March 11. The full image can be seen here; in it, the stars of Taurus are at top left and the bright object is the Moon. It was voted the best landscape picture of Norway in 2008. It was one of a set of six self-adhesive stamps showing tourist subjects. The word “Verden” on the stamp means that it is intended for postage to the rest of the world, i.e. letters outside Europe.
