According to the Northern Lights Centre of Canada, Northern Lights are bright dancing lights that “are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.”
These beautiful lights in the sky usually appear in the fall and winter season, and in Iceland, they have just recently made an appearance once more as autumn has finally come. Take a look at some of the photos being shared online by some individuals from Iceland:
