After traveling to Iceland to capture the Aurora borealis we had two nights of displays at a level 2 on the KP index, we were quite happy to capture some shots of it.... in fact we were chuffed to bits to have some clear skies and to be able to see it with the naked eye....mark that one of the bucket list!

But what happened on our third night will live with me forever, at 5:40pm the lights started to show... a level 3 or 4 perhaps? No! We were blessed to be here for what turns out to be the best Aurora display in 20 years... A level 10 KP!

Here is my first image at 5:40pm looking straight up into the night sky, this is the start of a level 10 as it raced though the cosmos to my lens.
