Northern Lights 39 by ragnaice Northern Lights 39 by ragnaice
19.09.2012. Reykjavík, Iceland. Btw, I'm uploading the pictures in a reverse order, that is, I first uploaded the last pictures I took because the lights got weaker. So the best is yet to come :)

Amazing! Seeing the Northern Lights is on my bucket list:D.
Are they frequent? I heard that the best time to see them is between September and March. Do they appear on a daily basis or once every couple of days? Do they last long or just a few minutes?
Sorry for all the questions but I do hope to visit Iceland someday:P

Yes, between these months because then it's dark. Their appearance depends on the sun (solar storms or something, I'm not quite in on the scientific side but I use this site to keep watch on aurora forecasts: [link]), and of course on the weather. They can last pretty long, some hours though sometimes they come in bursts over that time :)
I hope you will visit Iceland someday, I know about tourist services that specialize in aurora tours :D

Thanks a lot for answering. I know that website, I came across it a while ago and I bookmarked it just in case I'll need it someday :D. Hopefully I will *fingers crossed*.
I know about the Aurora tours, but I saw that it can be visible from Reykjavik as well. Oh well, I'll worry about that when the time comes :p.

Nothing wrong with this, and I've recorded the auroras for 31 yrs to date. Thumbs "up."
