Northern lights in Iceland

Christmas came early this year, or at least Iceland decided to surprise us with an early Christmas present: the northern lights!  

Some auroras were spotted as early as August 5, about a month before the usual first appearances of the northern lights. Some lucky Icelanders and visitors were able to spot a few lights dancing through the sky during Iceland’s holiday weekend. Hopefully this means an early start to the northern lights season!

Though these sightings may have only been a brief glimpse at this fall’s auroras, there is not long to wait! Northern light season is fast approaching–lights usually begin to appear around September. It’s only a matter of time before the Midnight Sun gives way to another more colorful display of natural lights!
