Stunning aurora glows over Iceland after the “dead” sunspot erupts.

A sunspot that “awakened from the dead” last week and exploded with a medium-sized solar flare, along with a mass emission of plasma, also illuminated the northern skies with sparkling lights. A stunning image of the effect showed the aurora appearing to be raining in the clouds over Iceland.

The rays of this aurora shone near Goðafoss waterfall, which is about 45 minutes from Akureyri, Iceland’s second largest city.
