This video is created using sequence of photos taken on April 12, 2016 when I witnessed KP index of 5.5. It was a G1 Magnetic Storm on that day, thanks to Sun, Mother Earth and Nature for such a breath-taking dance in Sky. It was like some painter is painting abstract colours, Sky was canvas and Nature was painter.


It was taken in ├×ingvellir anglicised as Thingvellir (or, mistakenly, Pingvellir), founded in 1930. This location is very important as we can see Glacier mountain in background, a Parliament building in front with view of lake and also the Eurasian and American fault line going. This was amazing show.


When I created the orginal Video with 6000 X 4000 pixel wide, my laptop gave up, waited for long time to get right tool to scale the size from 20GB video (best quality) to mere 2MB size.
