Tonight an unusually strong appearance of the northern lights are forecasted by the Icelandic Met Office in Iceland. Strength is estimated to be around 6 on a scale of 0 to 9. Usually the highest strength during winter, the whole northern lights season in Iceland, is around 5. Most of the time the strength is around 3 to 4 which gives quite a satisfactory and often spectacular Northern Lights but requires a dark area. A strength of 6 and a clear sky makes it easier to see the Aurora Borealis in a city or in any urban area.
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?
