Aurora Borealis?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any tips/ideas on how to make an aurora (example )?

I have an idea, but it needs to be polished. You make a nebula (like one in here), except in the last step, you duplicate the layer, and run zoom blur one way on the bottom layer, and on the top the opposite way (the way heading towards the Earth needs to have less transparentsy and less of a zoom blur though, look at the example above and you'll see).

Tips and/or ideas?

I think the last one (with some motion blur) might be what you're after...,
