Unless you live in Canada, you don't get to call fakes on the northern lights.

Canada or Greenland. Southern warm-weathered posers.

As for the latitude, I've spent many winter evenings in southern Labrador (NE Canada), way south of that flightpath, and the aurora literally filled the sky in all directions. That`s relatively close to the Magnetic North Pole (which shifts, very different to the "true" north pole).

I`m calling no shenanigans.

Here is the path of a non-stop SFO-PAR flight. (It's actually the same flight)

This is about as north as that flight got

The aurora extended about a third of the way to the horizon. At best the flight was at 66°N.

The lights seem pretty far south. My trig is good, but too many assumptions need to be made to figure this one out.

The video image must have been reversed.

As it is shown, the camera is facing out of the starboard side of the plane, which would happen to be the southern facing side on this particular flight. But the camera would have to be facing north to see the Aurora Borealis.

@vulture19, if you're at the north pole isn`t everywhere south?
