These are northern lights reflected in Hafravatn lake near Reykjavik, Iceland. Hafravatn lake is a convenient place just outside the city and just a 10 minute drive from my home. This lake was the only place I ever heard the northern lights. Yet it is unbelievably uncommon to hear the aurora. The sound resembles somebody tenderly collapsing tinfoil, yet the noise is present over the whole sky. Possibly more like an electronic round of hand clapping in an atmospheric amphitheatre. It used to be imagined that the sound was coming from pine needles popping in the profoundly charged air, but recently researchers from Finland discovered that the sound is coming from 70 miles high in the sky. Charged particles that are caught in our ionic layer are delivered with a pop when the are hit by intensely charged electrons from the solar winds. LINK
In Iceland, Northern lights can be seen from the finish of August to the start of April. It is difficult to see them in the Icelandic Summer in light of the fact that the sky is excessively brilliant. Throughout the Winter months the Northern lights can show up at whenever that it is dim. The most grounded Northern light shows are generally somewhere in the range of 10PM and 2AM.The ideal Northern lights evening is cloudless although a couple of them can assist with adding extra dimensions to the photograph. The difficulty is that Iceland attracts lots and lots of clouds. It rains almost every day here and then seeing Northern lights are extremely unlikely. In the event that you go out in the cloudy evening, you could get a window in the clouds which could allow you to see the aurora, however going out expecting this is plain crazy.
