“the result of collisions between gaseous particles
in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released
from the sun’s atmosphere”
It is very hard to put in to words the experience of seeing aurora/northern lights/aurora borealis/tiffany (what we named her), so before I do watch my short Iceland timelapse video which is heavily based around the aurora.
Now you feel like you have experienced the power and beauty of aurora? I hope so because for me its like nothing else.
Lets start from the beginning.
The Northern lights are the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere, as a result they can only be seen at certain times of the year in certain areas across the atomosphere.
We heard of people that had travelled to Iceland for the specific reason of seeing the Northern Lights and even after 6 or more trips still hadnt seen it, unfortunately it can be very unpredictable, the weather plays such an important role and we all know how unpredictable that weather is in Iceland.
We were incredibly lucky to see it on the very first night we were there, as we left Reykjavik, then briefly a few days later, then nothing for over a week, then jokulsalon we thought was amazing, then nothing for a few days then we got stuck in … (the hut) and in the middle of the night for about an hour, then nothing for a week then the amazing night at kefla and near godafoss.
