A little more info:
The northern lights (or an aurora) is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits light of varying colour and complexity.
The author was fortunate to get shots of aurora borealis lighting up the sky while the Bárðarbunga volcano was erupting. The orange/red glow you will see in the distance is from the hot lava spewing from the volcano.
Maybe the best Aurora timelapse to date.
Unbelievable colours, flawless editing.
