There’s only one thing better than being able to catch a rare glimpse of the famous Northern lights.

And that would be witnessing a fireball streek across the sky while you’re waiting for them to start. Calgary photographer Neil Zeller was in an area west of the city preparing to photograph the natural atmospheric light show when he realized something was growing brighter behind him.
