REYKJANES, Iceland — There are some things in this world that seem almost too magical to be real. The aurora borealis is one of those things.

The aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights, are the result of electrons colliding with the upper atmosphere, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The lights can be seen in the polar regions of the world and typically form about 260 feet to 1,600 feet above the earth.

While science explains how the lights form, it still looks like something from a sci-fi movie when you see it. OZZO Photography captured that magic with a recent drone video shot near Reykjanes, Iceland.

The result is beautiful and incredibly soothing. So if you’ve had a stressful day, sit back, relax and watch nature at its finest.
