Last year, we came across Henry Jun Wah Lee’s video Eye of the Storm. He’s recently put together another stunning video titled Apotheosis.
Filmed in March 2015, Lee was filming right at the peak of solar activity, which brought out some extrordinary displays of the Northern Lights.
The sky was covered with auroras so strong, they were visible at dusk. This continued all night until dawn. In the film you will see rare red, yellow, white, blue and violet purple auroras.
I was also fortunate to get shots of aurora borealis lighting up the sky while the Bárðarbunga volcano was erupting. The orange/red glow you will see in the distance is from the hot lava spewing from the volcano.
