Since the beginning of time, people have gazed into the polar skies,
spellbound by dancing beams of colour... the northern lights. Though
scientists have advanced many theories to explain the aurora borealis, and
aboriginal people around the northern pole have passed down their beliefs
through the centuries, mysteries still linger. As the auroral curtains shimmer
throughout this production, we experience a visual panorama of animated
legends, international space launches, and indigenous people and scientists
offering their perceptions of the wondrous northern lights.
