The Aurora Borealis Meets the Milky Way

March 9th, 2012, 9pm

Conor and I were nearing the end of our first day in Iceland in Winter, we pulled over in a lay-by just after sunset to get some shots of the night sky. We could see a faint whisp of grey in the sky that looked a little like cloud, but pointing out cameras in its direction we found that we were picking up a faint green tint in the exposures.

Just 10 minutes later and we were surrounded by the Aurora, beams of green and purple piercing through the sky. The display lasted for over 6 hours, not a bad start to the trip really…

Conor, Christine, Craig and Paul said thanks.
