BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: There's no way we can really do justice to this next picture, but it's on our website tonight if you want to take a good long look. As one writer put it today, it's one thing to photograph a meteor or the Milky Way or the northern lights, but all three in one photo, that's tougher. So kudos to photographer Tommy Eliassen , who captured the incredible scene thanks to Mother Nature in Finnmark , Norway .
