Stunning aurora glow above Iceland after ‘dead’ sunspot erupts

A sunspot that “awoke from the dead” last week and erupted with a medium-size solar flare, along with a mass ejection of plasma, also lit up the northern skies in glowing lights. One stunning image of the effect showed the aurora seeming to rain through the clouds above Iceland.

Rays from this aurora shone near Goðafoss Waterfall, which is about 45 minutes from Akureyri, the second-largest city in Iceland.
