A spectacular manifestation of the Aurora Borealis this month in Iceland. The Medieval Vikings might have interpreted this as a sign from the gods. But no: science. To wit:

The aurora was caused by a hole in the Sun’s corona that expelled charged particles into a solar wind that followed a changing interplanetary magnetic field to Earth’s magnetosphere.

Still.
