Icelanders noticed an unusually vivid display of northern lights this last night, a display which is also fairly unusual for this time of year. Astronomer Sævar Helgi Bragason filmed the event and posted it on the Stjörnufræðivefur website with the caption," Most amazing northern light show I've seen in years."

See Bragason's video, captured at Hótel Rangá in south Iceland,  below.
