When photographer Maciej Winiarczyk headed to Scotland to capture an incredible video of the Milky Way showing up in the night sky, he knew he was about to create something amazing. However, he couldn't have planned for something like this.
During his time-lapse video, something else showed up on the screen: The Aurora Borealis. This was a huge moment for Winiarczyk, as he claims to have been hunting the auroras for the better part of three years. The completely surprising, unplanned arrival of the lights makes one of the coolest time-lapse videos we've seen so far. Check out the footage below.

For many people, snow is an inconvenience. It messes up the roads and makes it almost impossible to get to work on time. And we all know that shoveling is horrible. It's all just part of one big headache.
But for the people who enjoy snow, this is the only time of year when they get to do some of their favorite activities -- like building snowmen, making igloos, having snowball fights, and snowboarding. This snow-loving family, for example, was so excited about the first big snowfall that they got their one-year-old daughter in on the action. Check out her awesome moves!
This little girl can't contain her excitement, and you can't blame her! Those skills are pretty unbelievable.

A friend of mine is traveling through Switzerland and is taking pictures of the most beautiful places. Her name is Martina Bisaz and she is already a little bit famous on Instagram. But I wanted to share her amazing work in the Panda community too.
Every weekend she drives through the swiss mountains with her amazing cars and captures what she sees. I believe that we live in the most beautiful country in the world.
Never mind the sub-zero temperatures in Norway recently: Spanish acrobatic paraglider Horacio Llorens had a plan, and nothing was going to stop him from executing it.
"Thousands of years ago, people looked up and saw the Northern Lights, and thought they were magic," says Horacio Llorens in an interview. "It feels like clouds are in front of you, 500m away, but in reality they're 15,000m over your head."
And he decided to see them the way few have seen them before: Using his paraglider, in the middle of the night. See the stunning footage of his one-of-a-kind adventure below.

It is really tough being small and cute. Having to deal with things that are always bigger and out of reach can be frustrating when trying to get through life. During the snowfall in the East Coast many areas received more snow than expected, making mobility a challenge.
For a tiny pup named Finn the foot of snow in Great Neck, New York was too much for him to get around. His human decided to build a maze for him so he could still get some fresh air and exercise outside. Based on Finn's reaction, it's clear the canine is happy with the new construction in his backyard.
After watching how much fun Finn was having, you almost wish more snow fell so a human-size maze can be built for us to enjoy. We said, almost.

At the point where the Earth “ends,” on the edge of the world, is where this magic and mysterious land begins, full of unimaginable beauty.
Patagonia has been inhabited at least since the year 10,500 B.C., but was discovered more recently by colonists. Nonetheless, this part of the planet has always been a source of amazement, of unexplainable beauty, and indomitable nature.
This is why famous British photographer Andy Lee settled on Patagonia for his latest project: Patagonia Dreaming I.
Visiting the most inhospitable landscapes of Chilean Patagonia, Lee captured surreal images using infrared photography, his trademark technique.
If you're unfamiliar with light pillars, prepare yourself for an education in a phenomenon that seems totally out of this world. Otherwise known as "aurora verticalis," light pillars are atmospheric columns of light created by the reflection of ice crystals in the clouds.
As such, light pillars are often seen in cold, icy places like Alaska and Norway, and they are absolutely incredible to behold. If you thought that the northern lights were out of this world, light pillars take it to the next level. See some amazing light pillar photography below.
Advertising art director Patrick M. Horton, who lives in Brooklyn, NY, with his roommates, decided the blizzard of 2016 was the perfect opportunity to build an igloo (technically a quinzhee). After three hours of work, they posted the snow-structure on Airbnb for 200 USD with the following description:
“Dripping with ingenuity and alt-lifestyle aura lays the Snopocalypse of 2016’s most desirable getaway,” read the ad on Airbnb. “Hand-crafted, and built using only natural elements – we’re offering the experience of a life time in this chic dome-style bungalow for you and bae.”
Update: “Unfortunately, your igloo, while very well constructed, has failed to meet our occupancy standards and has been removed from search results,” – was the response from Airbnb.
Those of us who are parents or teachers are challenged by our children to learn something new every day. Sometimes this involves teaching things we already know in new and exciting ways. Pawel Zaluska, a Polish photographer and filmmaker based out of Warsaw, faced this challenge when his 3-year-old daughter refused to put her jacket on.
In response to her fussing, he explained to her that "it is very cold outside." When she asked, "How cold?", Zaluska wanted to answer as fully and as creatively as possible. On his Vimeo, he wrote that it was so cold that even soap bubbles freeze, and decided to film a video to verify it.
"It wasn’t easy to capture those bubbles because only around 5-10% of them didn’t break instantly," he wrote. "And as you can imagine it was a challenge to be patient at -15 Celsius ;) but it was worth it because now that my daughter has seen it, winter is magic for her."
Even though we're a bit older, it's magic for us, too! See the video here:
