Glacier National Park: Northern Lights Over Lake McDonald 1000 Piece Puzzle
Photographer: Christina Adele
Skill Level: Challenging
The northern lights, or the aurora borealis, are beautiful dancing waves of light that have captivated people for millennia. But for all its beauty, this spectacular light show is a rather violent event. Energized particles from the sun slam into Earth’s upper atmosphere at speeds of up to 45 million mph (72 million kph), but our planet’s magnetic field protects us from the onslaught. NASA is also on the hunt for clues about how the northern lights work. In 2018, the space agency launched the Parker Solar Probe, which is currently orbiting the sun and will eventually get close enough to “touch” the corona. While there, the spacecraft will collect information that could reveal more about the northern lights.
This photo was captured by Christina Adele in April, 2021 during one of several specatular displays in Northern Montana last summer. The lights reflecting off of a calm Lake McDonald at Glacier National Park created this stunning photo, and we felt it just had to become a puzzle! We hope you agree!
All of our 1000 Piece puzzles measure 27.6 x 19.7 inches when completed. They are cut with an irregular piece shape to aid and strenthen your assembly quest, as well as produce an interlock so tight you can pick it up and flip it over (gently) without losing a piece. (Watch this and see!) They are manufactured using 100% Recycled Grade A chipboard, 1/16 inch thick resulting in sturdy, durable pieces that wont bend or break easily, and mated to a premium Matte finished print. They are then cut using 2 different presses, each going a different direction. This ensures your pieces are always fully cut, not stuck together so you have to tear them apart, damaging your pieces. (Click here for brief video) The end result is a puzzle worthy of being framed and hung in your living room! And we are working on a plan to offer handmade (right in our warehouse) wooden frames in a variety of colors and styles so you can do just that!
