Watch NASA’s Stunning Ultra-High Definition Video of the Aurora Borealis

Psalm 8:3-4 says:

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

As you watch this newest video from NASA, filmed in ultra high definition and 4K, the verses that David wrote echo through every frame. The Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, are mostly viewed within what is called the “Northern Lights Zone”—latitudes 65 to 72 degrees. Although on rare occasions, they can be seen in the lower 48 states and places like Scotland.

As light bounces in an array of color, and as Christians who believe that God created both the heavens and the earth, this video evokes a sense of awe and worship. Personally, when I watch videos like this, there is a feeling of how small we are and the vast greatness and glory of the Triune God. It reminds me of the first verse of “How Great Thou Art”:

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

As you watch, may the Lord inspire worship, reverence and awe in you at how amazingly vast His creation is and that He has graciously made us a part of it.
