NASA posted up a stunning image of a dragon-shaped aurora in Iceland’s winter sky made on February 18th.
“The aurora was caused by a hole in the Sun’s corona that expelled charged particles into a solar wind that followed a changing interplanetary magnetic field to Earth’s magnetosphere,” NASA reported.
The photo was taken by photographers Jingyi Zhang and Wang Zheng and clearly shows a huge creature in the night sky that looks like a dragon.
This is not the first time weird images have appeared above Iceland in the auroras.
A griffin – like picture was captured over Reykjavik in 2017 and a recent picture taken in Iceland by Scottish snapper Graeme Whipps shows a giant face in the sky.
Interestingly, the Icelandic coat of arms features the country’s four protectors, called in Icelandic Landvættir. Iceland’s four protectors are: a dragon, a griffin, a giant and a bull.
