Ryan's Notes on "Song of the Sky (2000)":
My first stab at using a pre-rendered background in World Builder. The aurora and stars were rendered in Lightwave first.

I created this piece from the memory of an occasion I had driving in northern Michigan during the mid-90s. It was the first time I had ever seen the Aurora and, due to our relatively southern latitude, the famous "ribbons" were below the horizon. The sky looked like a shimmering curtain beaming up from the horizon and I was transfixed. I've tried to approximate that effect with this render.
