Glowing Night Skies…

The northern lights did a gentle dance across the sky last night… they danced above the mountain and our lovely little cabin here at Gullkistan.

Recap from an earlier post about what exactly I am seeing:

So here is what I have learnt, in order to see the Northern Lights, you need a dark, clear night. They are visible from late September to March anywhere from 6pm to 6am. There also needs to be solar flares on the sun or solar wind; the Aurora Borealis happens when particles from the sun enter Earth’s atmosphere and collide violently with gas atoms. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.

  • Annie – unbelievable pics! Loving all your news.
    It’s 38 degrees in Sydney today – think I’d rather be in Iceland. Don’t worry I’ve got your garden watered.
    Keep us posted. Lots of love to you and the famous Viking.
