HELSINKI, Finland - Stargazers in Finland are observing what they call a brand new kind of Northern Lights.

Auroras typically consist of arcs, bands and patches but when Finnish amateur stargazers observed a certain phenomenon in the sky, they noticed a unique dune shape.

They believe the shape is caused by waves of oxygen atoms in the atmosphere and hope the dune shapes will provide news insights into the upper atmosphere.
