The aurora made beautiful piece of art up the sky; this one seen over Iceland performed a giant phoenix!
The phoenix-aurora pictures have been propagating in the internet like a tsunami terrifying the viewers all over the world.
Taken by Hallgrimur P Helgason in Kaldasel, he said that the bird showed up in the sky at a late hour so he didn’t want to miss the shot.
“It’s really a thrill shooting the aurora, especially when they are so playful like they were that night. I have to admit that I always get an adrenaline kick when the lights burst out like that – that particular shot was the top one of the night,” he remarked.
Generally, the northern lights are green and yellow but that night they also revealed red and blue which supposes that the aurora was intense.
If you’re willing to capture images of the aurora, Helgason suggests to use a camera and tripod, and recommends taking photos far away from city light pollution without a flash.
The phenomenon occurs when particles from solar explosions collide with the Earth’s magnetic field, which forces the particles up towards the magnetic North Pole where they interact with the atmosphere.
