Looking at clouds was a pastime in our family, my grandparents owned a ranch were the sky had no limit and you could just lay down on the grass and enjoy the ever changing white clouds during the day or spot shooting stars at night. We would see dragons, horses, bunnies that transformed into other animals as the wind blew. Here are some images of some clouds and natural phenomena that resemble wolves.
Marja-Terttu Karlsson, who resides in Pajala, Swedish Lapland, did not realize how lucky she had been when she was out to photograph the northern lights last week.Only when she uploaded the images to the computer, she recognized the familiar shape that appeared right before her eyes:
– I thought “oh my God, it resembles a fox or a wolf or something.” I didn’t know when I photographed what I got. It was amazing, she says.
Northern lights are common in the arctic region of the northern hemisphere and are caused by the solar wind colliding with the atmosphere. Recent years northern lights have been getting more common, caused by increased solar activity.
Ms Karlssons picture of the celestial animal has since become a viral success. It has been shared thousands of times on Facebook, but has also raised suspicion. Several people have been in contact with the photographer herself, to question the authenticity of the picture. – They think it is fake, but I can assure all skeptics that it’s genuine, Ms Karlsson says to SVT (Source)

Saami indigenous people believe these lights are their ancestors visiting them. The Salteaus Indians of eastern Canada and the Kwakiutl and Tlingit of Southeastern Alaska interpreted the northern lights as the dancing of human spirits. The Inuits who lived on the lower Yukon River believed that the aurora was the dance of animal spirits, especially those of deer, wolf, seals, salmon and beluga. In Norse mythology, the lights were the spears, armor and helmets of the warrior women known as the Valkyries. They rode on horseback, leading fallen soldiers to their final resting place at Valhalla. In Finland, a mystical fox was thought to have created the aurora, its bushy tail spraying snow and throwing sparks into the sky.
