Aurora Borealis - Þingvellir #9 by Stefán Kristinsson

Yesterday night (10. April 2009) I got out like I usually do when we have level 2 and more in aurora forecast. The sky was filled with Aurora Borealis mostly on level 2-3 but we got absolutly breathtaking show when the lights kicked up the level to 4-5 which lasted for 2-3 minutes. Then it went to level 2 again.

    i’ve never seen this with my own eyes and your photo has reminded me how much i would like to. it’s so beautiful and i love how the stars shine through.

  • Thank you hsien-ku… I hope that you will be able to see it with your own eyes sooner rather than later. Yes, Aurora Borealis is very beautiful when they show up – specially when they are strong, then the whole sky just becomes a colorful lightshow.
