“It’s unbelievable,” says Sigurður Ó Lárusson, who is a computer programmer and lives in Burstabrekka in Hagi in the southern part of the country.
The Northern lights were amazing last Saturday and Lárusson just had to whip out his phone and take some photographs. When he looked at them later he could not believe his eyes.
He was walking up a hillside by the house on his way out of the garage at about ten o'clock as he looked at the sky and became intrigued by the lights in the sky. What he didn't realize until he had sent his daughters pictures was that one of them clearly showed a face.

“It’s incredible. I didn’t realize this until my daughter sent me the picture back and underlined the image,” Sigurður tells mbl.is.is.
He says that the northern lights are frequently spectacular seen from Burstabrekka and admires how they form in the sky above Ingólfsfjall.
