The lights are formed by the interplay of charged particles from the solar wind and from the upper layers of the Earth’s atmosphere. When those lights form in the southern hemisphere they are called southern lights but northern lights in the northern hemisphere.The lights can be seen clearly in Iceland during the wintertime.
