In Iceland, police say foreign drivers court trouble looking for Northern Lights

The Northern Lights, or aurora borealis, appear in the sky over Bifrost, Western Iceland. Police in Iceland say tourists often underestimate the challenging conditions posed by Iceland’s twisty, narrow and icy roads in the winter.
Gunnlaugur Bjornsson, astrophysicist at the University of Iceland, is among the local scientists involved in a project studying the aurora borealis, saying much was still unknown about the Northern Lights and the vast system that controlled them.
