Wednesday, February 24, 2016, 4:42 PM - Spectacular photographs have rose from the ashes of aurora borealis, taking on the form of a giant phoenix, the fire-eating mythological creature.

The images were recently captured by Hallgrimur P Helgason, 64, in Kaldarsel, Iceland.

While we often associate clouds with taking on familiar forms, it turns out the Northern Lights can do this, too.

We went digging through our archives to find photos of auroras that resemble other things.
