Photographer Nate Bolt, on a overnight San Francisco to Paris flight, set up a time lapse camera to record the journey (with permission), and found midflight that he was shooting an aurora borealis
Apparently it was only visible via the camera; he said the cabin lights were too bright to see the aurora with the naked eye. Full trip video
, clocking in at 2 minutes.
