High Northern-Lights activity tonight

Tonight is the best night this week to see the Northern Lights in Iceland, particularly in the western half of the country.

The Icelandic Met Office has a running 'aurora forecast' on its website. It explains that "the spectacle of Aurora Borealis requires dark and partly clear skies" and that "even Grade 2 (low activity) can be beautiful and Grade 3 (moderate) can be dazzling." The forecast for tonight is Grade 5 (high).

The aurora forecast falls to Grade 4 (active) tomorrow night and Thursday night then to Grade 3 for the rest of the week.
