It's hard for me to play around in Gaea without wanting to take the mesh into VUE for a full landscape render. For this scene I used VUE's "spherical landscape" model to (hopefully) more accurately model predawn sunlight on a mountain top. I used some tricks to fake it in "Oasia (Dawn)" :-) This might be another good candidate for the dynamic wallpaper treatment, but I will admit that I haven't seen what it looks like during the day yet...
Pickle Jar Variations what's this?

"Absolutely Stunning"
I would love to see the Aurora beginning at sunset in person one day, until then your stunning work continues to impress again and again over the past 20 years since I found Fluorescence. Thank you Ryan.

"Love the Dynamics"
Already have DisplayFusion setup for the dynamics. I hope this doesn't make your job more difficult. Will this scene make it easier to render?

I encourage the dynamic wallpaper treatment. (I think you might have to have an night image without the aurora as a transition before the aurora appears.) Incidentally, a number of years ago I was driving home along I-90 in Montana and saw the aurora looking just like it's depicted here - green curtains to the north and red in the corner of the sky!

Thank you! I played around with it a lot and decided that I didn't want it outshine the mountaintop.

"Beautful, but..."
...the aurora needs to be brighter, IMHO
