15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Moon coming out

This is a photograph of the Northern Lights in Iceland. Based on the weather that day everyone was saying we were not going to be able to see the lights. We went out anyways and ended up seeing a two hour show, and saw a bright flaming sparkling shooting star. All the locals said it was on of the best shows they have had in a really long time. In this photo it is when the moon was coming out.
