These incredible photographs of the aurora borealis captured the moment the lights formed the outline of a phoenix – the giant fire-eating bird common in many ancient mythologies.
With outstretched wings and a striking bird-shaped profile, the image – captured by photographer Hallgrimur P Helgason – wowed stargazers in Kaldarsel.
Mr Helgason, 64, said that the bird showed up in the night sky an hour after he got there and started snapping.
He said: ‘It’s really a thrill shooting the aurora, especially when they are so playful like they were that night. I have to admit that I always get an adrenalin kick when the lights burst out like that – that particular shot was the top one of the night.’
He uses a camera and tripod to photograph the lights, and advises snapping in the dark away from city light pollution and never using a flash.
He said the Northern Lights were mainly showing in green and yellow colours when he was shooting that night but also sported red and blue, suggesting the aurora was strong.
The incredible photograph, taken of the northern lights in Iceland, took the remarkable form of the mythological phoenix bird.
The animal shape formed among the famous lights was captured by photographer Hallgrimur P Helgason.
Other shapes quickly followed, though none were as strikingly familiar as that of the phoenix.

Note: These images come from American Kabuki’s blog where a lady named Denise claims to have contact with beings from the Sphere Alliance who apparently communicated about “pink energy’s” not long before these photo’s were taken. I haven’t been following the conversations, so follow the like below if you would like to learn more.
It’s been suspected for quite some time now, that intelligence operatives were planted in the One People’s community in Morroco – which Bill was a high ranking member of. Whether or not Denise (or Bill) are credible contacts I can’t say for sure, as always use discernment.
One thing is for sure, these are absolutely beautiful images coming in from parts of the USA that rarely, if ever see the Aurora Borealis dancing across the night sky…enjoy!
Looks like Denise got “a hit” and the message from the Sphere Alliance was verified…and on scehduled! Also got a private double confirmation in an email from Denise of whom she is talking to… which I may write up later… so fun! -AK

A gorgeous aurora was seen on Cape Cod, Mass. last night. (Chris Cook via spaceweather.com)
A series of coronal mass ejections over the past few days have hurled bursts of solar gas and magnetic field at our planet, sparking a severe geomagnetic storm and pushing the aurora borealis deep into the Lower 48.
On Monday night, the northern lights were photographed in states that rarely get to witness the optical manifestation of a solar storm. The Northeast was brimming with hues of green, pink and purple, but photographers in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas and even Texas.
If you happened to head outside around 1:30 a.m. in central Virginia, you might have caught this view. A very dark sky was needed to see the aurora down here, but David Murr in Louisa, Va., shared some great northern lights with us.
Note: Beautiful images of the Aurora Borealis taken from “down under”, see the link below for more images and a short video of Gaia in splendid action! Enjoy..
Big shout out to Andre @ ServantofTruth.org for the link, nice find…mahalo!

New Zealand and Australian star-gazers were treated to a beautiful display of colour last night as the Aurora Australis lit up southern skies.
Miles Holden posted at picture on Instagram of a purple sky over Queenstown last night, writing: “A jolly good light show the last couple of nights here.”
The nocturnal colour-show was sparked by a large Coronial Mass Ejection (CME) from the sun that created a severe geomagnetic storm that hit Earth over the last couple of days.
Ian Griffin, Director of Otago Museum, watched the Aurora Australias display from Otago Peninsula last night.
He told Radio New Zealand “It was a very, very nice show. At times it was spectacular with beams and lovely colours.”
The keys to photographing an aurora is the right spot, clear skies, looking in the right direction, a lack of light pollution and a long exposure with a tripod.
Now that had to be a sight to see in Kansas, check out all the meteors whizzing by…
Michigan October 24, 2011 – The timelapse spans 2h 20m from just after dusk to around 10:30 pm EDT.

A surprise aurora appeared over the night skies in the Drake – Owensville area. These are a few stills put into animation to show a little bit of movement of the lights. It repeats a few times as I had to change angles on the camera.

Here is a little time lapse from stills showing the faint aurora explode in just a few minutes to become some of the brightest aurora ever seen at such low latitudes. Still pictures can be bought here: http://www.realclearwx.com/cpg15x/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=0
