Evosia Studios’ Henry Jun Wah Lee produced this timelapse video titled Eye of the Storm after a two-week trip to Iceland during the solar maximum—a once-every-eleven-year period of great solar activity resulting in incredible northern lights.

“That first night I was greeted by a spectacular display of lights that extended across the entire sky. The sky was crystal clear. Five days later, a strong x-class solar flare hit the Earth’s atmosphere, producing trippy, psychedelic lights … It was really crazy. I thought I was in an episode of Star Trek!,” he told The Phoblographer.

In 2012, Lee visited Iceland during the summer, producing the video Legend.
