Photos: Northern Lights in Southwest Iceland

Iceland Review editor and photographer Páll Stefánsson took these images of the northern lights at Þingvellir National Park last night. With the Icelandic Met Office forecasting level-9 northern lights on a scale of 0-9, people flocked to observe the spectacle.

The unusually bright northern lights were the result of a solar storm.
