As reported by mbl.is, on Tuesday evening you could admire the spectacular show of the lights of the midnight. Morgunblaðið reporter Hafþór Hreiðarsson, while in Húsavík, took some great photos of the aurora illuminating Skálfandi Bay.
This week, the aurora also appeared in the skies over Reykjavik, but its dance only lasted a few minutes before the curtain of clouds fell.
According to the Icelandic astronomy website, stjornufraedi.is, auroras most often appear between 11pm and 1am.
The phenomenon occurs when large amounts of charged particles rushing at high speed with the solar wind reach the Earth and collide with the atmosphere at an altitude of about 100 km.
