Stunning aurora shines over Iceland after ‘dead’ sunspot eruption

A sunspot that “woke from the dead” last week and erupted with a medium-sized solar flare, accompanied by a massive plasma ejection, also lit up the northern sky with glowing lights. A stunning image of the effect showed the aurora appearing to rain through the clouds above Iceland.

The rays of this aurora shone near Goðafoss waterfall, located about 45 minutes from Akureyri, Iceland’s second largest city.
