Three rows of lights seem to be dancing and swaying across the sky amongst the stars with a colorful display that shoots out behind an Inukshuk near the town of Churchill in the Canadian arctic in Manitoba in Canada. The night life is full of millions of magical creations but none of them are as fascinating as watching a spectacular show put on by the Northern Lights.

The Northern Lights are created when two forces, the solar wind and the Earth's magnetic field meet up with each other and begin to mingle. The solar wind particles hitting the gases of the Earth's atmosphere is what makes these lights glow in the night sky and produces a show to remember. The show can be fairly short, while other performances can last for quite awhile, only Mother Nature can predict these unique occurrences.

Why pay to see a show at a theater when you can sit along the shoreline in the town of Churchill, Manitoba and watch the night sky bring about a whole new meaning to the word show. Watching the millions of stars flicker in the sky near the town of Churchill, Manitoba is an amazing show in itself but once the Northern Lights take over, there are not enough words to explain their beauty.

This Inukshuk that was built along the shores near Churchill, Manitoba is another symbolic creation that represents strength, leadership and motivation. Between an Inukshuk and the Northern Lights, it would be hard to find another place that carries so much magic and spiritualism.
