Spectacular Aurora

On Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) for 3/1/21 there is a picture taken by Hallgrimur P Helgason, showing a great example of pareidolia (the tendency of humans to perceive a pattern that is not there.)

As it isn’t copyright free I’m not displaying it here but this is the link.

It’s a wonderful shimmering green-aura’d image of a flying bird which APOD likens to a phoenix (itself of course non-existent.)
