The New York Times has also published a stunning video captured on that night on its Facebook page with the caption, "This is the reward that everyone in Reykjavik, Iceland, got for turning off the lights.

Northern Lights activity remained strong last night and with the continuing clear skies, they are once again expected tonight.
