The magical light we can see in the Arctic region of the hemisphere, created by the fusion of the solar wind with the atmosphere and also known as the Aurora Borealis, creates truly magical symbols in the sky. Anyone who has had the opportunity to see this unusual phenomenon at least once in their life knows the magic of colors.
Marja-Terttu Karlsson from Pajal likes to take photos in her spare time, especially the sky, which has many shapes that resemble figures, people or animals.
At first Marja-Terttu Karlsson had no idea that she had taken a photo of a cloud that reminded her of a wolf, only when she transferred the images to her computer did she realize what an incredible photo it was.
“Oh my god, that looks like a fox or a wolf or something.” When I took the photo, I didn’t know what I was getting. It was incredible,” said Marja-Terttu Karlsson.
Marja-Terttu Karlsson’s pictures became an absolute hit on the Internet. People all over the world were impressed by them.
Of course, people are often not to forgive of other people’s successes, so questions were raised as to whether the pictures were real:
“They think it’s fake, but I can convince all the skeptics that it’s real,” Karlsson told SVT

The Salteaus Indians have a special traditional version of unusual symbols in the sky consisting of clouds or the Aurora Borealis. They believe that these are representations of their long-dead ancestors visiting or giving a sign. The Salteaus of eastern Canada and the Tlingit of southeastern Alaska believe that the Northern Lights are a dance of human spirits, while the Inuit (also a lower Yukon Indian tribe) believe that the Aurora Borealis is a dance of animal spirits. In their tradition, animals such as wolves, elk and deer hold a special place and are very important to the spiritual aspect of their religion.
If you are a fan of Norse mythology, you probably know that they interpret the light of the Aurora Borealis as marking the spears of the warrior women, the Valkyries.
The Finns believed that a mystical fox created the Aurora, whose shaggy tail sprayed snow and threw sparks into the sky.
