The northern lights or Aurora borealis are back in business

The entrance of the Northern Lights into our lives this winter is spectacular.  The show that this wonder of the world put on tonight was nothing less than magnificent and lasted for hours.  This was the view from my balcony on the sixth floor in the downtown area in Reykjavík around 11 pm. I could not resist taking my tripod and camera out to the balcony for a few shots. How convenient is that, just stepping out to your balcony to photograph the Aurora borealis having a great night? The light floated and danced in the sky displaying different light strength and colors.  I could see a line of red and yellow as if the Aurora borealis was imitating the rainbow.  As we understand the strength, tomorrow is supposed to be much more than tonight.  According to the weather forecast, the sky is also expected to be clear, almost around the whole country from 9 pm to midnight.
