Amazing photo of a goat-shaped aurora borealis over Greenland [Amazing Photo of the Day]

Here on dotTech we have featured a photo of an aurora borealis before, and we aren’t strangers to odd phenomenon in the sky, dragons or otherwise. Despite all the exposure we have to amazing photos, the photo I have to share with you today might shock you.

The following is a photograph of an aurora borealis that appeared over Greenland during the Shelios Expedition this past August. “Shelios Expedition” is when a bunch of people gather in Greenland to view aurora borealises. (Aurora borealisi?) What makes this particular aurora so special? It is shaped like a bloody goat (minus the bloody part). Check it out:

I know you must be thinking it: photoshoppppppp. This isn’t photoshopped — it is real, folks. Amazing, isn’t it? It even has the goatee.

    Try aurorae borealis, although there are variations; this seems the most proper to me. Borealis is an adjective basically meaning northern and it really shouldn’t have a plural.
