Northern Lights Activity to Increase Into 2013


The chance to witness Mother Nature’s breathtaking Northern Lights is one of Iceland’s greatest appeals – and NASA researchers are predicting that December’s supercharged Northern Lights displays will continue into 2013.


Recent coronal mass ejections from the sun are causing amplified Northern Lights displays, stunning stargazers in Iceland and across the Northern Hemisphere. The beautiful glowing display of lights is generated from charged particles created by the sun’s coronal mass ejections colliding with the Earth’s atmosphere at more than 3.2 million mph.

As the sun’s activity continues to increase, researchers predict more flares and coronal mass ejections, indicating continued supercharged Northern Lights displays into the New Year.
