I wish we talked.
Aurora Borealis is an 1865 painting by Frederic Edwin Church of the Aurora Borealis and the arctic expedition of Dr. Isaac Hayes. The painting measures 56 x 83 1/2 in. (142.3 x 212.2 cm) and is now owned by the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
The artist (Frederic Edwin Church) had to convey the experience of watching the aurora without having witnessed it himself.
