KP7 Aurora over Skogafoss

I'd never been to Iceland before this trip; But I knew I was excited when they said we had the potential to see the Northern Lights. Our first couple nights in Iceland were cloudy, But as the trip progressed; the skies cleared up and we got to see a KP7 (scale goes from 1-9 with 9 being most powerful and bright) aurora during our 3 day stay in Vik. Needless to say, it was breath Taking.
