Aurora delivered to Coldplay

I'm proud to announce that my aurora from March 17 in 2013 is used by Coldplay in their unique TV-special Ghost Stories. In the movie my aurora is used when Coldplay performs their new single "A Sky Full of Stars". The movie was shot in Los Angeles earlier this year in front of 800 fans in a specially built amphitheater.

Filmed by Grammy-nominated director Paul Dugdale, Coldplay: Ghost Stories was recorded in a custom-built amphitheatre in front of an audience of 800 fans i Los Angeles earlier this year. The show blends a unique in-the-round performance from the band with cinematic vignettes and immersive 360-degree projections. This TV-special is now broadcast worldwide while Coldplay is touring with their new album "Ghost Stories".

I recorded the aurora over Östersund on 17th of March 2013. It was photographed for 4 hours and then put together to a movie showing the development of the aurora across the entire sky.
