Passenger shoots northern lights timelapse on a flight to Iceland

Aryeh Nirenberg captured a remarkable sight for the rest of us to enjoy while on vacation: the northern lights as they appeared from a plane window on New Year's Eve. Better than any fireworks!

Aryeh says: "This was captured on Delta Flight 446 from JFK in New York to KEF in Reykjavik, Iceland on December 31st 2016. I had a whole row to myself so I set up my Nikon D810 with a tripod at the plane window and captured this footage."

Aryeah got some beauties from the ground, too:
