Mysterious Star Wars blaster fire sound coming from the Northern Lights
Mystery sounds coming from the Northern Lights have been caught on tape.
Lapland tour guide Oliver Wright recorded the audio of the noise while watching the heavenly dancers pass over Abisko in Sweden on Christmas Day.
He claimed that magnetic winds bounced off each other and he heard 'swooshing' coming from the power lines.

After sharing the clip online, he wrote: 'On Christmas Night 2016, I was standing beneath an intense display of auroras in Abisko, Sweden, when I heard something that sounded like Star Wars blasters.
'I rushed closer to the power lines and was able to record a sample using my iPhone.'
Scientists do have an explanation for the noise from the Aurora Borealis.
Researchers at the Aalto University in Finland located where the sounds are created, and discovered that the sounds form about 230ft above the ground level.
Compare this to the lights themselves, for the dramatic displays caused by disturbances in the Earth's magnetic field occur around 75 miles above the Earth's surface.
Researchers located the sound sources by installing three separate microphones in an observation site where the auroral sounds were recorded, four years ago.
They then compared sounds captured by the microphones and determined the location of the sound source.

The Aurora Borealis was seen at the observation site and the simultaneous measurements of the geomagnetic disturbances, made by the Finnish Meteorological Institute, showed a typical pattern of the Northern Lights episodes.
Professor Unto K. Laine from Aalto University said: 'Our research proved that, during the occurrence of the Northern Lights, people can hear natural auroral sounds related to what they see.
'In the past, researchers thought that the aurora borealis was too far away for people to hear the sounds it made. This is true.
'However, our research proves that the source of the sounds that are associated with the aurora borealis we see is likely caused by the same energetic particles from the sun that create the Northern Lights far away in the
