Having never been on a flight longer than 5 hours, nor across the Atlantic or Pacific, I'm sure that If I was given a whole row to myself I would try to sleep to pass the time. But, sleeping wasn't what this passenger had in mind.

On a flight from San Francisco to Paris, he set up his digital camera and created an amazing time-lapse video which caught the Aurora Borealis.

The flight took the Great Circle route above the polar regions, giving us a look at those spectacular northern lights.

At the end of this video, you'll see the rig with which he snapped the 2,459 shots -- one approximately every two miles. After the flight, they were edited together along with a few judiciously placed iPhone pics shot along the way.
