Story on the back of the card:

Named for the Roman goddess of the dawn, the Aurora Borealis has captured the imagination of humankind since ancient times. The Inuit personified them as powerful, helping spirits. People travel from across the globe in the hope of catching a glimpse of one of Nature’s most elusive and dramatic light shows.
Stuart Barr spent several years photographing these dancing lights in northern Canada.
