Sometimes Real Life Looks Just Like Skyrim

Here's a surreal, beautiful photograph of an auroral storm over Arctic Henge in northern Iceland, featured today by NASA.

Looks straight out of Skyrim, doesn't it? The Northern Lights sometimes pop up while you're climbing Skyrim's frosty mountains, and that structure looks almost exactly like one of the game's Guardian Stones.

I feel like a dragon is about to pop out of the sky and start burning down Nordic villages.
