Øyvind Schei, posted the film, called 'The Dazzling Beauty' to his Facebook Group 'Minemakiskeoyeblikk' ('My Magical Moments'), on Saturday. 
The Northern Lights, also known as the aurora borealis, is caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere, and is most visible within the Arctic Circle. 
Here is the post on Facebook:

And here is some more footage Schei posted on YouTube last week:
