The Aurora season

The Aurora season

This time of year when the nights are dark and sky is clear, the Aurora Borealis, or Northern lights, can be seen here in Iceland. The activity can be seen on few web pages, such as http://www.gult.is and http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/pmap/pmapN.html
This plot shows the current extent and position of the auroral oval in the northern hemisphere, extrapolated from measurements taken during the most recent polar pass of the NOAA POES satellite. Of course they can not always be seen, so you have to be prepared to try a few times.
